The art that I create is often inspired by an engagement with the natural world and my commitment to preserve the planet and all that live within it. Traversing the molecular level to the biosphere as an artist and scientist, I feel a deep appreciation for the beauty and complexity of life and for how much there is yet to learn. As a biologist my reasoning is evidence-based and comes from an understanding of the unity of all organisms throughout evolution on our planet but I see little difference between how I think or work as an artist or as a scientist. An interest in process as a driving force often dominates my art production and much of my work is photo-based.
