Hey there!

I'm Aimy.

I’m a science illustrator and designer based in Toronto. 🌱

Before embarking in earnest on my journey into illustration and design, I found myself wanting as interdisciplinary a career as possible. I studied at McGill University, completing an honours degree in environmental science and a minor in classical history.

In my time there, I worked as a field assistant in an ecology lab, working on the impacts of invasive species and microplastic pollution across North America. Based in a museum, I became inspired to pursue a career that allows me to use my skills in art to further science communication among disparate communities.

I am an avid hiker, a sci-fi and fantasy enthusiast, and profuse hoarder of graphic novels. I'm currently completing my Master's degree in Biomedical Communications at the University of Toronto.

My proficiencies

I have worked with a variety of programs to create my work, including 2D, 3D, videomaking and prototyping software. I also have a fair bit of knowledge in crafting and knitting, although those skills don't come in quite as handy.
