Featured Work

Check out the newest addition to my portfolio!


I am Emily Adams, a Biological Illustrator and Designer from Los Alamos, New Mexico. I have a degree in Biological Illustration from Iowa State University. To broaden the scope of my studies, I supplemented my classes with independent studies in graphic design and pursued part-time work for two and a half years, as a graphic designer and social media manager at the Collegiate United Methodist Church in Ames, Iowa.

While working on my coursework, I participated in several internships: I worked doing scientific illustration for Los Alamos National Laboratory, research illustration for  a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Iowa State University, and after graduating I worked for a year as a webdesign intern with a small company called Aboundant. Since April of this year, I have worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for the Institute for Childhood Preparedness where I manage the Institute’s website on Wix, develop marketing materials, format brochures, and create info-graphics. Since starting my Masters in Medical Art at the University of Dundee in September 2019, I have had the opportunity to draw and 3-D model a variety of anatomical specimens and created a life size facial cranial wax sculpture.

I am always looking for new opportunities in all of these fields. Outside of biological illustration and graphic design, I have experience in teaching and tutoring, laboratory science, children’s illustration and the fine arts.
