Corallite Art is a selection of artworks by oceanographer and marine biologist Dr. Sarah Frias-Torres.

The blog name was inspired by the aragonite (calcium carbonate) skeletal cup formed by an individual stony coral polyp, where the polyp sits and into which it can retract.

Currently, Dr. Frias-Torres is a research collaborator with institutions in the United States and internationally. While doing research on conservation and restoration of coral reefs and megafishes, she also illustrates the natural world she comes in contact with.
