Paul Kelly, MScBMC, BSc Kinesiology

I completed my master's degree in Biomedical Communications from the University of Toronto. While our discipline is rooted in the traditions of medical illustration, the BMC program trains artists with a background in science to create visual resources for a wide range of audiences using a variety of both traditional and digital tools, including high-end 3D animation and web-based applications.

Throughout my academic career I found that difficult subject material, especially in science, can be quickly and effectively communicated with proper visual aids. No camera or microscope can conceptually capture the dynamic nature of biochemical reactions and human physiological processes. This requires a skilled artist armed with knowledge from numerous scientific disciplines. It is my intention for my work to stand out with original and unique presentations, along with my ability to communicate a strong, clear message of otherwise difficult subject matter.
