Amanda M. Manowski, MSMI
I received my BFA in Scientific Illustration from the University of Georgia and my MS in Medical Illustration from Augusta University. My early life was split between Alaska, Georgia, and Wisconsin, and travel has inspired my intense interest in the natural world. My introduction to medical illustration came to me through learning of the scientific illustration department on campus while I was majoring in music performance at UGA. The concept of creating art for the sake of education threw the door to my true interests wide open. Since then, I have never looked back as I have found boundless enjoyment in the intricacies of the human body expressed through medical illustration. My other interests include botany, sustainable fishing practices, and taking pictures of my dog Mystery Meat. In every project I take on, my primary goal is to communicate your intended message with clarity while instilling the spirit of life-long learning through striking visual media. My past experiences include creating promotional imagery for the Augusta University PRIDE Program, creating promotional imagery for the UGA Biochemistry department, development of patient education materials for the Children's Hospital of Georgia, and working as a part of a team to help design and illustrate a large-scale evolutionary timeline for the Georgia Museum of Natural History.
