Art and Science in Serigraphs, Drawings, Watercolor and Acrylic Paintings
The Art and Science Experience
Art is a way to explore, clarify, and share. I like to communicate relationships, interactions, and story, perhaps seasoned with a bit of humor, but leaving room for individual viewer interpretation and discovery.
I am particularly interested in concepts and techniques that integrate art and science, that combine visual aesthetics with knowledge gained by investigating the natural world. Experimentation and problem solving is part of the art-making process. Investigating the properties of art materials is, in itself, fascinating, and connects to principles of science in practical ways. The process and product of my art making is influenced by a background in life sciences and a career in science education with an emphasis in teaching and curriculum development.
My artwork includes serigraphs, paintings in acrylics and watercolor, and drawings in pencil and ink. Currently I am focusing on botanical illustration. Some day I expect to indulge in drawing and painting by computer. Mostly I make art for the fun of it and am delighted when the imagery has conceptual surprises.
