Biomedical Illustration and Design
My name is Siena and I am a trained biomedical artist. A biomedical artist is a professional artist with education in the life sciences, visual communication and media technology. Collaborating with scientists, physicians, and other specialists, biomedical artists transform complex information into visual images that have the potential to communicate to broad audiences. As visualization specialists, they create imagery that advances medical science knowledge and empowers health literacy for patients and the public. They have the medical and scientific knowledge to grasp complex information, distill it down and communicate the story in a clear visual narrative that is accurate, educational and engaging. A biomedical artist is a visual problem solver. Background research, including reading scientific papers, meeting with scientific experts, perhaps observing surgery or a laboratory procedure, is often an integral part of the creative process. Their work promotes education, research, patient care, public relations, and marketing efforts.
