My name is Alice, and I am a self-employed medical illustrator working in the Washington, D.C. region. I specialize in 2D illustration created in Adobe Illustrator and/or Photoshop. I also produce 2D-animation, where I animate vector and pixel-based illustrations in Adobe After Effects, either with narration you provide or that I produce. For inquiries, quotes and comments, please go to my contact page.

I grew up in a family of scientists, and always thought I would become a doctor. But the thought of dissecting humans and death in general made me think that that career choice was not for me. However, from the time I was really young I was always drawing and making things out of construction paper, empty jars, egg cartons, or whatever I could swipe from my dad's desk.
It wasn't until I had graduated from college that I learned about the medical illustration profession. I didn't know what I was getting into when I started, but now, I can't believe my luck in being able to do a job that's ever inspiring and challenging. Though in grad. school I did end up dissecting not one, but two cadavers, those 12 weeks were worth the satisfaction I get every day in my job.
