ILLUSTRATOR & VISUAL SCIENTIST As a kid, my artist parents encouraged curiosity and observation of the natural world. I found myself deeply absorbed in its discovery, all of it endlessly engaging. When it came time to choose a career path, I combined my two favorite pursuits—a love of biology / science with my art / creative energies. Two seemingly disparate directions, yet art and science both strive to explore and explain the world around us. So, I moved nonstop toward a life in medical and scientific illustration. EDUCATION I attended California College of the Arts, where I graduated with High Distinction in Drawing, and was one of five people accepted into the competitive UCSF Program in Medical and Biological Illustration, where I studied and practiced intensively to hone my skills. A year-long internship in the University of Cincinnati Medical Illustration Department gave me the real-world experience to charge ahead. SPECIALIZED WORK A San Francisco Bay Area resident of beautiful Marin County, CA, I have operated my own successful biomedical illustration business, with emphasis on head and neck topics for academic applications, advertising, medical legal, multimedia and the medical device industry. My primary client is Stanford University, but I have happy clients all over the world. I am a Certified Medical Illustrator, a Fellow of the Association of Medical Illustrators, and a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators .
