- Hello - 

ava krueger holds a human skull and draws on an easel looking up

My name is Ava and I create illustrations and designs in order to communicate science and medicine. I hold a Bachelor's degree in BioHealth Sciences (Pre-Med) from Oregon State University and a Master's degree in Scientific Illustration from Zuyd University. As a professional member of the AMI (Association of Medical Illustrators), I stay up-to-date with the latest designs and knowledge necessary for a medical illustrator. 


I cater to various markets whether that is: 

Education (patient education, research, anatomy and physiology)

Advertising (pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical devices)

Medical-legal (medical malpractice, injuries, legal exhibits)

Surgery (cardiology, neurology, oncology)

Veterinary (Zoology, Entomology, Ornithology) 

As medical illustrators, we are trained to be able to illustrate many aspects of medicine. If you have the science, we have the visual solution!


This can be friendly, clear illustrations of a procedure to empower a patient, detailed anatomical plates to teach students, or eye-catching visuals to bring public awareness to a subject.


While I am located in the United States, I can provide work remotely for you no matter where you are located. We can communicate through email, video calls, and navigating time differences.


Since I could hold a pencil, I have loved to draw and convey the world around me on paper. Now I combine my greatest passions in life as I am able to travel, constantly deep dive into new scientific subjects, and create art.
