Hi! My name is Cari. I am a professional medical & scientific illustrator, and a member of of a wider community that is committed to helping scientists, science educators, and doctors share the value of their work through the use of accurate educational images. I got my start as a biologist, with a B.A. in Biology from Carleton College (2010), but then later moved on to integrate my love of art with my love for science by pursuing an M.S. in Biomedical Visualization at UIC (2014). In 2017 I completed my board certification with the Association of Medical Illustrators, and in a field that is constantly changing and evolving, I am committed to keeping my skills sharp and my knowledge up-to-date.
I have been blessed with opportunities to build a wide range of scientific and artistic experience, and I truly love the challenge of bringing my education and experience in both of these disciplines to bear in solving the communication challenges faced by my clients. I currently work as a full-time medical illustrator with the medical device company Medtronic, but I also take on additional projects in my spare time. I work with doctors, researchers, publishers, and others to develop imagery that is clear, professional, compelling and accurate, which capture the target viewer's attention while at the same time communicating key scientific messages quickly and effectively.
