Kelsey Oseid is an illustrator, author, and amateur naturalist based in Minneapolis, MN. Her gouache illustrations focus on natural history subjects like taxonomy, biodiversity, and taxidermy, as well as related subjects like astronomy and the ways humans relate to the natural world. Her popular "Creatures of the Order" poster series, started in 2016, catalogues the taxonomic categories of the animal kingdom.
She is the author and illustrator of two books with Ten Speed Press. What We See in the Stars and Whales: An Illustrated Celebration are illustrated, nonfiction explorations of the night sky and whales, dolphins, and porpoises. She and her husband Nick Wojciak run the paper goods brand Kelzuki, offering art prints, puzzles, temporary tattoos and more featuring Kelsey's illustrations.
