ANNA SIEBEN // VISUALISING MEDICINE
Scientifically accurate and aesthetically pleasing content that conveys the story to be told at its best, optimising knowledge transfer and tailoring it to a target audience, that is what I aim for.

That's me, Anna Sieben. I am a medical artist with professional experience in creating visual and interactive resources to make medicine accessible, comprehensible and engaging. As a medical illustrator with a background in medicine, I love to work where science and art meet, combining two passions of mine: the art of medicine and medical art.
Anatomy and (patho)physiology as well as the conveyance of medical information in a way that is clear and illustrative interest me. When studying Medicine at the University of Groningen I was fascinated by the models, animations and illustrations used to explain illnesses and body processes to patients or to educate students. I realised I wanted to be a part of the process of the visual conveyance of a medical story. In order to do so, I went to study MSc Medical Art at the University of Dundee.
After completing my Master of Science in Medical Art with Distinction, I have been working as a medical artist focussing on e-learning. I currently work as medical artist and e-learning developer at the Institute for Medical Education at the University Medical Center Groningen. I am member of AEIMS (Association Européenne des Illustrateurs Médicaux et Scientifiques).
I love working with others to create visually dynamic work and constantly learning new skills to further develop my practice. My first step is diving into a subject, making sure I really understand the science behind it: thorough, challenging research upfront. I then translate this knowledge into a visual story. I offer a range of services to ensure that the key message is optimally conveyed.
