Julie Gamart, PhD
As you, I am a Scientist. During my career path, I have realized how research communication is essential and how illustrations can make it stronger. I have been drawing since I was a child, so illustrating my own figures or schemes seemed natural to me. Having a lot of positive feedback, I then created J.Gam’ART where I offer an illustration service for scientists.
I can use and combine several hand-drawn or digital illustration techniques, I like to translate a scientific message into an accurate and informative illustration that matches the client’s taste and preferences.
