Lynda J. Goff - Artist's Resume www.lyndagoff.com


Lynda has been a Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz for more than 30 years and has conducted research and taught undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral courses on all seven continents including 8 field seasons in Antarctica and a year as a Fulbright Scholar in Australia. She is recognized as one of the world's experts in the study of marine plants - particularly marine algae.  She has published hundreds of scientific papers, two books and several articles for magazines and is now focusing on writing for the "scientifically curious" non- scientists.


Lynda began as a photographer at the age of 12 and throughout her career as a biological research and educator her cameras have been her most important tools - including electron microscopes and fluorescence confocal microscopes. Her photographs have appeared in hundreds of journals, magazines and books and she has received several prestigious awards for her work.  Her work has been featured in the Monterey Bay Aquarium and several galleries in California and she has published in and won awards from Nature's Best and Audubon magazines.


As an artist, she has studied photography with some of the master nature photographers including Frans Lanting, Glenn Bartley, Chris Dodds and Joe and Mary McDonald.  She is also an award-winning bird carver and painter, having apprenticed with Master Carvers Jim Sprankle, Bob Guge and Jerry Simchuk. Recently her Western Screech Owl

received a "best of show" award at the highly competitive Columbia Flyway Wildlife Show in the Pacific Northwest and she regularly receives awards at the Pacific Flyway Show in Sacramento.


Lynda has recently become a Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Santa Cruz and has moved to Davis, California where she has a home and studio, surrounded by the hundreds of thousands of passing birds of the Pacific Flyway.
