CATHERINE LABARCA

Scientific & Medical Illustrator

 Science and medicine have influenced my art from my first interest in painting the human body at 15 years old to my first series of plastic surgery paintings at 17. 

         Pursuing my career as a Medical Illustrator, I completed my bachelor's at Virginia Commonwealth University, graduating with a bachelor's in Communication Arts with a concentration in Scientific and preparatory medical illustration with a minor in Biology. Learned and studied human anatomy, physiology, biology, genetics, and zoology to allow easier communication with clients and provide scientifically accurate illustrations. Currently, I am continuing to build my knowledge and skills by completing my master's in Medical Illustration at Zuyd University in the Netherlands.

         Being in Europe has enabled me to gain unique experiences, learning different techniques, and perspectives allowing me to be a well-rounded illustrator. With my education and experiences, I hope to continue to educate and incite curiosity through my illustrations.

Using my knowledge in life science and visual communications to synthesize, interpret, and idealize difficult scientific concepts. Creating a clear and precise visualization that reflects my artistic interpretation but also holds scientific accuracy.
