Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration
I am fascinated with overall forms and surfaces in nature, as well as underlying detailed structures. My recent artistic practice follows a long career as a research scientist, training initially in zoology then working for 25 years as a neuroscience researcher examining the structure and function of single nerve cells. Now I represent the world around me in drawings that emphasize the contours and textures of animal and plant forms, interpreting their intricate beauty at the microscopic and macroscopic scale with graphite and coloured pencil on a variety of surfaces. Another focus is the human body, with pencil and charcoal drawings ranging from portraits to renderings of body surfaces to explorations of human behaviour in everyday environments.
