Bridging the Crevasse: Sharing the Cryosphere with the Public

Marlo Garnsworthy (Pixel Movers & Makers)


Marlo GarnsworthyThis webinar was part of the webinar series "Polar Art".

Marlo Garnsworthy is an editor, an author and illustrator, and a polar science communicator. She has a curiosity for the natural world since she was a little child growing up in Australia. Marlo’s ideal way of living involves being surrounded by nature/wilderness, writing, illustrating, exploring and adventure.

Marlo visited Antarctica twice in her role as the Outreach officer, most recently on the JOIDES Resolution -IODP Expedition 382 in 2019. As a science communicator, Marlo focusses on polar science and oceanography, ‘Science communication is my driving passion, and I’m especially interested in how narrative, art, and animation can reach, engage, and inspire a broader audience. My current focus is on writing and illustrating nonfiction, and I occasionally write for sites such as Envirobites and Oceanbites’. Marlo has a joint science communication venture, Pixel Movers & Makers, with Kevin Pluck.
