Introduction

I am a scientist and a visual artist, or the other way around….

In my world, art and science belong together as naturally as air and water. Both inform my work influencing my approach. Observation, experimentation, improvisation, making comparisons, searching for patterns and answers all come together within the creative process. As such I have developed my own mixed media techniques and my research influences the subject of my paintings. The process has been magical, nurturing and informative.

I also view art as a vehicle that transcends academia in communicating environmental issues to wider audiences extending the reach of traditional research publications. My paintings are often environmentally based and images build on my experience as a scientist and my sensibility as an artist to communicate concerns, dreams, and emotions all emerging from a deep and relentless love for life.
