“All Wrapped Up”

Here is the long promised piece I made last year.  It is based on a confocal microscopy image that I took at my previous job.

Stream of consciousness 

I have been reading a lot about finding your niche as an artist and being successful without feeling like you are "selling out".   In both art and science there is a fine line between being innovative and retaining your character.  Where do you draw the line between expanding your horizons and selling your soul?...

“Branching Out”

Here is the first piece I presented at the Women in Bio SciArt event and the story behind it. Branching Out (2016)   -  9" x 9" Neurons have a beautiful architecture, but are never actually symmetrical.  Yet they still give a sense of balance.  One metric of neuronal differentiation is the measurement of their processes...
