    …Every experience with SayoStudio has been amazing. They always have fantastic ideas of what to illustrate for our work. This really helps and takes the burden off of me since sometimes I am not even sure where to start…

    We did a review session with our team - and everyone loved the illustration!!! There is so much richness of detail when you zoom in. We are your biggest fans. THANK YOU so much for getting us this last mile. I'm really excited to see this out there.

    What makes you a unicorn is that you have a biology background and you’re a fantastic artist. Your background in science makes you fundamentally different. You’re among the best in the country at what you do, and on a consistent basis, you deliver what you promise. I know I can rely on you even when wacky sh*** happens (because in life, it always does).

    As promised, your anchor images have been NSF's way in on this story that presented many challenges to stand out in the mix. Reporters agreed to cover specifically after I sent the image (Sky&Telescope, Forbes)!

    You ask questions that other illustrators and designers would never think to ask. I listen to you, and you ask questions of researchers that make me think, "this is why we pay her"
