Artist Statement

I have always needed to create art; even when surrounded by scientific laboratory equipment as a dual biology major, I dream of drawing. I often close my eyes to capture the beauty of what I am doing. Specifically, I am attracted to drawing and interpreting human anatomy. I encounter imperfect human figures and staid scientific concepts; yet, to me, they are beautiful in their irregular contours of life and geometric theoretical properties.

Figurative sketches from live models, actual cadaver dissections or photographic references are digitized and enhanced using the computer as a drawing tool. I am intrigued by the way that science can be manipulated and that this manipulation of my drawings has similarities to scientific laboratory procedures. My artistic technique is continuously enhanced by my scientific ability.
