ARTIST STATEMENT

My work approaches life through a scientific perspective with an emphasis on the processes through which the molecular is made visible. I am very interested in the undetectable elements that drive the interactions of the visible world. These elements are often seen through textbook imagery as colorful and animated.  I embrace those elements in large scale paintings with a palette that evokes the arena in which the molecular actions take place.  Recent work has been based on the amino acid sequences for the proteins involved in the complicated reactions that produce feelings of love, lust, and connection, such as oxytocin, dopamine, and vasopressin.  My work has evolved from my studies in art, including an MFA in painting from San Francisco Art Institute in 2010, and my work as a pathologist for many years, which involves visual examination of life through the microscope and an understanding of the reactions that take place at an even more minute level than the microscope permits.
