I am a medical illustrator with over a decade of experience creating high-quality visual content for both print and digital platforms. 

With a background in Human Kinetics and a Masters of Science in Biomedical Communications, I specialize in detailed Anatomy & Physiology illustrations for educational publishing. I love continuing to learn about the human body. From concept to research to sketch to final rendering techniques, I also illustrate biology, chemistry, and environmental science textbooks.

Beyond the book, I have developed skills in interactive media design, scientific scriptwriting, storyboarding, and 2D animation.

I also enjoy logo design, lettering, and creating art in both digital and traditional media to celebrate my love for animals and nature. My current artistic passions include pet portraits and creative cakes, and I am exploring a growing interest in visual storytelling through photography. I am a long-distance runner and ambassador of movement for physical and mental health.
