Andrea Lacy developed a deep interest in both art and science in high school. She became enthralled not only by the imaginative worlds created by animators and illustrators, but also the biological world of nature and the human body. Andrea received a BS in biology with a minor in illustration from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2018. She was overjoyed to learn how a career in medical illustration integrated her previously separate interests. She received her MS in Medical Illustration at Augusta University in Georgia in 2021. While in graduate school, her passion for the arts and storytelling as well as a fascination for how the human body operates flourished. She strives to use her artistic capabilities to not only inform, but also captivate viewers with a deeper understanding of the medical sciences.
