Lily Reid

Lily Reid grew up in Overland Park, KS where she discovered a love for art and science. In high school she was introduced to the field of medical illustration and made it her goal to pursue it as a career path. Lily attended Iowa State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Biological/Pre-Medical Illustration. At Iowa State she learned what it was like to be a scientific illustrator and found a deeper love and appreciation for nature and biology.

Lily is excited for her two years in the BVIS program to learn about all of opportunities a career in Biological Visualization has to offer. She hopes to expand her knowledge in a variety of new programs for illustration, 3D modeling, and interactive media. She wants to use her skills to develop educational tools for medical practice, and also explore surgical and medical-legal illustration.
