I am a scientific illustrator who started out as a molecular biologist with a passion for visual thinking. A curiosity for the invisible but significant led me to study Molecular Biology at first. Becoming a scientist taught me to be a critical thinker, care about details and apply technical precision.
The pipette was my primary tool in the lab, but ever since I can remember, drawing has helped me to comprehend biological processes and explain myself to others. At some point pencils and sketchbooks became constant companions.
In 2015, I finally participated in a science illustration distance program which was key for improving my illustration skills and the entrance to a community of like-minded people. Around that time the wonderful and logical prospect of combining two passions – art & science – crossed my mind and I started to strive for a scientific illustrator career.
