'For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with a world hidden underneath our skin, one only visible to a small group of people. As a scientific Illustrator I am fortunate to now be part of that world and help translating it for others.'
Sarah Gluschitz, CMI (they/them) is a Scientific Illustrator currently working as an academic medical Illustrator at St. George's University.
My name is Sarah Gluschitz (they/them).
I am a Scientific Illustrator and starting Tattoo Artist. Originally from Hamburg, Germany, I have lived in the Netherlands for 8 years and am currently residing on the island of Grenada, West Indies.
I speak German, Dutch, and English fluently, so don't hesitate to contact me in any of these languages.
As a global citizen and queer non-binary person, I believe in a holistic approach to safeguarding the LGBTQIA+ community and incorporating anti-racist practices into my life and my work. I believe that an anti-racist approach and actively reevaluating ourselves and our past critically, helps us to move to a more inclusive future.
