I create minimalist contemporary sculpture inspired by my deep fascination with the natural world, and my mission as an artist is to tell a story through work at the intersection of art and science. I’m driven to make art that excites curiosity and connects us to the extraordinary, strange beauty of the world around us.
The two decades I spent as a research molecular biologist allowed me to explore the complexity of our world, and I continue to view my surroundings through the eyes of a scientist. The structure of a leaf or the movement of a bacterium can be astonishingly beautiful, and I sculpt with the aim of illuminating the subtle and the tiny.
Through my work I hope to deliver scientific content viscerally to encourage curiosity and a desire to look more closely at the smallest details of the fantastically rich and beautiful world around us.
I've been passionate about both art and science since I was a child. A look into a microscope at the age of 6 started me on a long pathway toward a career as a molecular biologist, and I studied plants and bacteria in the lab for 20 years before transitioning to studio art full time 15 years ago. Watch my TEDx talk, The Art of Science, to hear more.
My pathway to sculpture started over 25 years ago with wood furniture: I wanted to live surrounded by beautiful design, but didn't have the money to afford nice furniture. So I learned to make it, and fell in love with woodworking in the process
I work in Moscow, Idaho, where I am inspired by nature in all its forms, by snow and ice, and by the beautiful rolling hills that surround me
Despite being a friendly, maternal type, I love tentacles, fangs, horns, claws. Fierce creatures fascinate me. I love natural history museums almost as much as I love art museums
