I'm the illustrator, animator 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 graduated the following November as a proud member of an exceptional class.
I am currently working full-time as the only 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 illustrating you can find enjoying live music, travelling with my husband Brandon, or playing with my new puppy Buttons (isn't she something).
