Art and science both provide the excitement of discovery. I start with an idea or hypothesis, do an experiment, and let the results point the way to what happens next. I strive to let the colour and form lead the way, even when it takes me in a direction that is radically different from where I thought I was going. I find this process to be as challenging in art as it is in science and indeed, in life.
My abstract watercolours are occasionally populated by microscopic critters, embryos, fish and other images from the natural world, reflecting both my day job as a biologist and my spiritual connection to the natural world. The images are not intended to be representational. My work is simply an expression of the quiet or joy or turmoil within, influenced by the music and the colours and forms as they emerge.
