Art and science have always been mutually inclusive for me. As a practicing artist and scientist, my approach to art incorporates science through the use of creative and innovative techniques and methodology. I reinterpret science as art. I am also intrigued with collaborative processes in art.
During my artistic career I have worked in various media including painting, drawing, digital media, video, music & sound, and multi-media installations.
In 2003 I began to incorporate the use of photography with my love of drawing to capture images created with bioluminescent bacteria – bacteria which produces its own light. My art reflects the technological and artistic challenges presented through working with living organisms.
More recently, I have expanded the application and use of bioluminescent light to more complex works including figurative compositions (portraits; nudes). Some of my newer work depicts my keen interest in surreal imagery and symbolism.
Science serves as a vehicle for expressing my creativity and artistry. Art serves as a motivation for me to interpret our living world.
My art continues to fuel my desire to explore, research, investigate, and discover new and different ways of expression. I expect it to be ever present, and forever evolving.
