Hello! Welcome to Pretty Sciences!
I am Dr. Ana Maia, a science illustrator and a researcher in Marine Geology. I am passionate about sharing scientific knowledge in a friendly but effective way, using visually appealing media.
I combine my experience in PhD-level academic research with arts design to produce accurate scientific images for publications and presentations, translating complex scientific data into powerful visuals. I offer vector graphics and I work with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, ArcGIS, and R.
Based in Cardiff (UK), I work freelance for clients worldwide. Clients include The Frozen Ark Project, CryoArks, British Geological Survey, and fellow researchers at Cardiff University.
