I am a Canadian medical illustrator currently based in Basel, Switzerland.

I strive to create distinctive visuals that capture the viewer’s interest and communicate complex information clearly and effortlessly.

Above all, I love to learn and help others learn. My curiosity drives my passion for medical and scientific visualisation, a centuries-old yet ever innovative profession that marries aesthetics with the discovery and dissemination of knowledge. I greatly enjoy collaborating with the discoverers and explorers of this knowledge the scientists, physicians, researchers, educators, inventors in making their stories be heard and understood.



My Background

I graduated with Distinction from the Medical Art M.Sc. at the University of Dundee, a unique programme jointly coordinated by the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification and the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. Notably, my training has included extensive anatomy instruction on Thiel-embalmed cadavers, along with surgical and clinical observation to complement theoretical tuition.

Before turning to my current field, I worked as an architect, a profession that, like medical art, lies at the crossroads of art, science and technology and places heavy emphasis on research, visualization and communication. I couldn’t have asked for a better springboard into my career. My rigorous design training has taught me to approach project briefs holistically and with utmost attention to scale, functionality and detail – and with the conviction that no problem is too big to solve.

I've worked with various e-learning teams in Scotland and England as well as private clients to develop the right resources for them.  I am well-versed in multiple media, from digital 2D to animation to interactive 3D. This means I can strategize with you to ensure that your content is delivered in the most appropriate and effective format.
