I'm a scientist by training, but I've always spent nearly as much time and effort on art. I've learned through some classes, from my Dad and from other artists, and from careful observation of "how things work" as related to art.

There are a lot of artists and crafters on Etsy who are not only Science nerds, but also trained and practicing scientists. It may seem a little unusual for scientists to participate actively in the arts. We're the logical ones, not the crazy creatives, right? But take a closer look and there are lots of parallels between the two activities. Many of things artists do on a daily basis (at work), scientists also do, and both areas can be profoundly creative endeavors.

I have BS's in Materials Science (3) and in Humanities (21.6 - Music composition) with a minor in Visual Studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and a PhD in Polymer Science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I studied painting at the Museum of Fine Arts Museum School in Boston while simultaneously pursuing my degrees at MIT.

A number of my original pieces have been sold into private collections (email for a listing), and I have shown in juried, non-juried, and ad-hoc shows for over two decades.
