Artist Statement:

Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize winner and founder of the fields of Quantum Chemistry and Molecular Biology once said "I realized at the time that my original ideas in the field of science usually came or perhaps always came from my having a picture or model relating to some phenomenon." The important synergy between the visualization of science and the progress of science goes back thousands of years. There is nothing more gratifying to me than to effectively communicate a complex medical or scientific concept so that others can understand it.
