Elizabeth Shick graduated summa cum laude from the University of Georgia with a degree in Scientific Illustration, then went on to study Medical Illustration at the Medical College of Georgia. She was the senior medical illustrator at MLI before opening her own company, Medical Visions, Inc., in 1991. She is one of the top medical legal illustrators in the country with extensive experience, personally producing over 15,000 exhibits. "You can't just have a degree in art to be a medical illustrator. You have to have half art and half science. And that's difficult because a lot of artists don't like math or science. We don't like the technical aspect of things. And a lot of scientists have problems with visual communication. So we're kind of a rare breed because we've got to be good at both."Elizabeth’s motto is: “Do what you love and delegate everything else.”
