Medical and scientific illustrator Alison Schroeer is founder and chief artist for Schroeer Scientific Illustration. Her home and studios are located in Southbridge, MA, and she resides with her husband Dr. Bryan Carella. Bryan is professor of Mediebal Literature at Assumption College. They share their home with their two lovable rescue dogs, Abby and Sionnach, who were discovered through Petfinder.com. When not creating medical or biological illustrations, Ms. Schroeer enjoys birdwatching, exploring New England, visiting family and friends in North Carolina, and collecting antique natural history illustrations.

Ms. Schroeer has two master's degrees: a Master of Science degree in Medical Illustration from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA, and a Master of Science degree in Forest Resources from the Warnell School of Forest Resources at The University of Georgia, Athens, GA. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Plant Science from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. She also takes continuing education classes at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she has recently begun teaching on a part-time basis. Her extensive education in the sciences and her direct involvement in scientific research form the foundation of her quest for accuracy in her scientific art.

Ms. Schroeer has created medical illustrations and biological art on commission more than fifteen years. Her clients, who include prominent pharmaceutical companies, advertising agencies, hospitals, science textbook publishers, and medical journals, are loyal, repeat customers. She has worked as Senior Biological Illustrator for Carolina Biological Supply Company, and completed the Fellows Internship in Biological Illustration with the Ichthyology Department of the California Academy of Sciences, and Botanical Illustration Internship with the late Bente Starke King in the Liberty Hyde Bailey Hortorium at Cornell University.
