MY STORY

It was at the beginning of my university studies when I created my very first scientific illustration, even though I did not realize it at that point. As a part of a course assignment I drew an elaborate and detailed schematic of a eukaryotic cell and I still remember how painful and exciting at the same time it was (especially drawing the ER manually in Paint!). After graduating with a BSc. In Biochemistry and Cell Biology, I continued with my studies at EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany. Throughout my PhD. I daily dealt with data visualization- be it for presentations, posters or manuscripts. During this time, my affection for scientific figures was growing; for my PhD. thesis, for example, I had all the figures ready first and only then started with the process of actual writing. As I was getting more skilled and proficient at different programs, I started helping my PI and fellow colleagues with their projects. Gradually I developed as a great passion for graphic design as I have always had for science. After moving back to Slovakia, my home country, I continued collaborating with my former lab and proved to myself that this is the career path of my dreams. I strive to combine my attention to detail and aesthetics with my background in molecular biology to help you make visually appealing and at the same time scientifically accurate figures.
