Meet the Team

Photon Illustration is a team of two freelance scientific illustrators: Adrianna Allen and Alayna Guza

We hold bachelor degrees in Medical Illustration, and have had the privilege to study anatomy and histology at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. 

Working from our Michigan studio, we strive to make every illustration commission both visually appealing and precise in order to satisfy the individual vision of each client. 

As scientific illustrators we are skilled in translating written, verbal, and conceptual ideas into appealing illustrations. We strive for accuracy by using the information provided to us by the client, and additionally conducting our own critical research. Based on the client's needs, we can provide not only illustrations, but also the descriptive text to accompany the images. We understand the importance of accuracy in communicating scientific ideas, and the necessity of visually engaging illustrations to spark interest in the general public and students who are learning an unfamiliar subject. 

Creating scientifically based illustrations provides us with a wonderful opportunity to promote science literacy and curiosity, and to help educate the next generation of people who will influence the world.

Adrianna Allen

Hi! My name is Adrianna and I’m hooked on space. With a deep interest in space and science and having been trained in Medical Illustration, I use my illustrations and unique perspective to communicate new innovations, research, and discoveries. I strive to inspire people’s interest in the investigation of the cosmos… from genetics to galaxies! 

I am delighted to be an artist member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA) and I support the Planetary Society and the National Space Society (NSS)!

I'm Alayna and I love anatomy! The body is a fascinating machine and I enjoy spending my time learning about how it works. Through my art, my goal is to create engaging imagery that is easy to understand.

At Photon Illustration we know the importance of education and science literacy for all communities, and to be able to contribute to the challenge that is instilling curiosity in the youth of the future, is something that we hold great value to.
