I had the pleasure of working with Mary Kate while communications director at a medical society in Chicago. She produced the most amazingly detailed medical illustrations, exactly what I needed, for several patient education handouts. Her pricing was more than fair and she completed the illustrations on or ahead of schedule. Our printers (and then our physician members) commented on how rich in detail her illustrations were.

Mary Kate is a brilliant medical illustrator. She created several detailed illustrations for me over several book projects, and delivered works of exceptional quality each time. She checked back with me during every step of each project, so that the illustrations were exactly how I wanted them to be. All the illustrations Mary Kate created for me are published in medical textbooks. She delivers quality. She is great to work with. She is diligent and efficient! I wouldn’t work with any other medical illustrator.”
