I'm the animator, illustrator and graphic designer officially named Stacey-Lynn Krumholtz (better known as just Stacey). I created SLK-ART as a home for my creative works.
I received my Honours Bachelor of Science from Western University with a specialization in cell and developmental biology. Not knowing quite which road I wanted to pursue after my undergraduate degree, I took a few extra courses at the University of Toronto (dentistry?), and wrote the LSAT (law?) before finally discovering the only path that was ever truly meant for me - a Master of Science in Biomedical Communications (MscBMC) at the University of Toronto. Having finally found a way to combine my love of all things art and science, I completed my masters degree in the summer of 2015 and officially convocated the following November as a proud member of an exceptional class.
I am currently working full-time as the medical illustrator/animator for the Arthur and Sonia Labatt Brain Tumour Research Centre (BTRC), at the The Hospital for Sick Children (Toronto). I create illustrations, animations and a variety of visual assets for Dr. James Rutka's laboratory as well as other principal investigators of the BTRC. I am also the first in-house medical illustrator for the Department of Surgery at the University of Toronto and the Journal of Neurosurgery, based out of Charlottesville, Virgina of which Dr. Rutka is Editor-in-Chief.
When I'm not drawing, painting or designing you can find me enjoying my favourite live music venues, adventuring to new restaurants with friends, or FaceTiming with my niece Aria and new nephew Darius (on a good day, all three!).
