Testimonials (a selection of)

"Anne Corless was commissioned to create complex medical illustrations for EACTS and I was very pleased to collaborate with her. This proved to be easy to do through use of the Cloud, although we were based in different countries, sometimes in very different time zones. At each stage Anne shared the development of the artwork and I was able to review and comment. She was willing to listen to ideas and interpret them visually. The completed dynamic illustrations are backed up by her creative and technical expertise as a medical illustrator with a good knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology. EACTS is an international association devoted to the practice of cardio-thoracic surgery. Surgeons around the world will enjoy seeing these images." (May 2019)


The collaboration with Anne was pragmatic and fruitful so that we achieved our common aim in a short period of time being providing sophisticated artwork for a scientific article or better a position paper of the European Association for Cardio-thoracic Surgery. Position papers are means to transport the official opinion of a scientific society to physicians who want to learn e.g. upon a new surgical technique. Words may not cover all details to explain pathologies as well as treatment strategies to the community and sophisticated artwork is needed. Thereby, Anne substantially helped to distribute the message regarding a new surgical technique among physicians around the world who are now additionally supported by a thorough and perceptive visual means of learning.

NEUROANATOMY WORKSHOP; ‘An Introduction to the Art of Medical Illustration’. "We thoroughly enjoyed having Anne Corless run a tailor-made workshop for us. She was able to convey her expertise to a group of university students with various backgrounds and levels of experience; teaching in small groups and then working on a one-to-one basis. Anne was very helpful with the planning of the event, advising us on what materials to purchase and had taken the time to prepare a presentation to guide the session and ensure all objectives were achieved. The students, guided by Anne, used specimens from the anatomy lab as reference to create accurate anatomical drawings of the head and neck and used a multitude of techniques to achieve this. By the end of the session, it was clear that all participants had gained something of value, be that becoming more confident in their art skills or simply appreciating the complexity and efforts that go into the illustrations found in textbooks.” (February 2015)
