Early on in life Sarah gravitated towards scientific imagery, spending long days sketching in natural history museums and preferring textbooks to literature.  As a 15 year old high school student she was awarded a rare opportunity - to intern at the Columbia Medical School, Health Sciences Department.  There, she worked alongside medical personnel and new media experts to create interactive, digital study tools for the medical students.  This experience solidified her desire to simultaneously exist in both the scientific and artistic realm.  
In 2003, Sarah earned a BFA in Medical Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology, one of the few programs in the country that offer this unique area of study.  With coursework that involved full cadaver dissection and operating room observation, in addition to an array of classes in traditional and digital media, she garnered the knowledge and skills necessary to embark on a fruitful career creating biomedical art

Since graduating Sarah has predominantly worked in the pharmaceutical, biotech, and surgical device industries.  She has created a plethora of illustrations for patient education and marketing purposes, in addition to numerous award winning anatomical and demonstration models.   When time permits, she enjoys zoological and paleontological illustration, and portraiture as a hobby.  Sarah is a Certified Medical Illustrator and has been a member of the Association of Medical Illustrators since 2002.
