Samantha Elmhurst's illustrations bring the anatomy and physiology of horse to life on the pages of Horse & Rider magazine. As well as being technically accurate, they are extremely attractive to look at – modern, clear and fresh, so the reader understands what they are all about. They make science accessible to the lay person.
Alison Bridge, Editor, Horse & Rider Magazine

“I have always wanted to work with a medical illustrator to help bring alive in an engaging and a simple to understand way some of the technical stories we have to tell our customers. Samantha Elmhurst has provided the required illustrations exactly as briefed, in both their anatomical accuracy and overall appearance and I was very impressed with the time taken to respond to all my requests. Samantha is also able to provide help in the interpretations needed to create impactful images and she is very easy to work with and flexible. We have been very happy with the end result.”
