seeing science through a new lens
biomedical animator & illustrator
Hi, I'm Ingrid - a biomedical artist with interests in visual story telling, 2D/3D animation, and graphic design. My philosophy strives towards creating a harmonious relationship between arts & sciences, balancing both visual aesthetics and scientific accuracy.
I graduated from the Biomedical Communications Masters Program at the University of Toronto (U of T) in August 2021. I also completed my Bachelor of Science at U of T in Immunology, Health & Disease, and Art History.
Alongside medical art, I like to unwind and explore new creative outlets through photography and hiking.
