Sabine Freiermuth (2009)
Sabine had extensive training in medical illustration and zoological illustration from the Lucerne School of Art and Design, Switzerland, when she applied to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as a Bartels Science Illustrator. However, it was her comic illustration style that caught our interest. We felt her bold, vibrant colors, and youthful style would complement the Lab’s Celebrate Urban Birds citizen-science program. Sabine created a brochure and flyers for Celebrate Urban Birds. After completing her internship, Sabine completed a medical illustration internship in Perth, Australia. She currently resides in Switzerland, where she works as a medical illustrator for AO Surgery Reference, illustrating the AO Surgery Reference app and website, and also operation manuals for surgeons.
