Giorgia Di Muzio _ Science Illustrator
The magic fusion of art and science
During my PhD courses, as I was working with unknown planktonic organisms, I found my true vocation: drawing for scientific purposes. Putting to good use my scientific background and my drawing ability. Interlacing these two astonishing worlds into my own life.
Drawing nature for the benefit of your own research.
What is Scientific Illustration?
Science illustrators create accurate images aiming at informing, communicating, helping the development of science by sharing discoveries.
High levels of accuracy are achieved through intense study, research, and scientifically informed observations. In this respect, art plays a fundamental role in communicating something that cannot be conveyed through words.
Highly detailed artwork provides visual explanations and depictions useful for scientists’ and medical professionals’ training and research. It also makes difficult scientific topics accessible to the general public.
Scientific illustration is art at the service of science.The Guild Handbook of Scientific Illustration, Elaine R.S. Hodges ed., 2003
