Visualization clarifies and opens up possibilities
My name is Maria. I am a medical illustrator. I am a visual communicator of science, medicine and health. My goal is to effectively communicate complex science and health topics to an array of audiences: patients, physicians, surgeons, scientists, students, trial juries, consumers, and corporations to name a few.
I love exploring different formats. I create digital and traditional illustrations, 2D, 3D, animation and web-design. I create compelling visuals both for web and print with an extensive experience visualizing medical data - CT scans, MRIs and X-rays - gained working for more than three years at Canada's top medico-legal visualization company. Past two years I've been working as an animator and storyboard artist creating explanatory and educational animations for various medical animation, communication, online education and IT companies. I have a two-year experince of teaching principles of biomedical visualization at the University of Toronto Human Biology department.
I live in Toronto, Canada. In 2010 I graduated from the University of Toronto, Biomedical Communications Master of Science Program. This is one of four CAAHEP accredited medical visualization programs in North America. I hold a Bachelor of Human and Animal Physiology degree, that helps me a lot in my work as a medical illustrator. In 2009 I became a member of the Association of Medical Illustrators, first as a student, then as a professional.
Visualization clarifies, opens up possibilities and helps share our ideas with others.
