Hi and welcome! My name is Leonie Schön and I’m an artist as well as pathology resident from Germany. I have always had a passion for both: Art and Medicine. When I was about 10 years old I started taking art classes once a week until I got accepted to Medical School. Over the course of my studies and especially in my histology and pathology class I felt the urge to paint the hidden world under the microscope.

My journey with Lamellipodum Art began after I graduated in 2019 and I started my Instagram page, which is called @lamellipodium. With my art I am exploring connections between art and medicine, trying to reveal the beauty of the human body one painting at a time. I get inspired by everything under the microscope and bring it to life in vibrant watercolors!
