WomeninScienceArt's Shop Announcement

WELCOME!

I painted a series of historical women scientists because no one thought there were any of importance, besides Marie Curie.

The truth is, women scientists have made a huge contribution and many men scientists have benefited. Albert Einstein himself admitted he would not have understood relativity without the brilliant work of Emmy Noether. And Edwin Hubble built his theory on Henrietta Swan Leavitt’s genius interpretation of Cepheid stars.

It took a great deal of time and searching to find these women. Then it took me time to understand what they did. Not to say that I really do; they were all geniuses in their fields. But I wanted to know what they did and how they did it so I could incorporate their work within the portraits. Most of these women only have one photo.

I set out to create a series of pop portraits that would look iconic. It is truly astounding the accomplishments they achieved; so the accompanying text was a way to teach people about them in a positive light, without reference to the fact that they were overlooked. For each portrait the last line references her work as incorporated into her fashion—an allusion to how society trivializes women’s accomplishments by focusing on her superficial appearance.

Each piece was photographed with a very large, high resolution digital camera done at Electric Works in San Francisco who also creates the prints.

The prints are museum quality, archival and look exactly like the original painting.

All prints are made on premium paper that suits the piece beautifully. If there is a specific paper you would like, please contact me.

I am an artist living in San Francisco. You can see more of my work on my website.
