About

Breast cancer biologist by day, artist by night.

Most of my childhood and teenage years were spent thinking I would someday be an artist of some sort. Then I had two amazing teachers in biology who set me squarely on the path to becoming a scientist. After many many years of studying and training, I finally ended up with a PhD studying the genetics of heart development. I have since studied various biological systems at several different institutions.

But I never stopped creating art. I've long attempted to at least partially support my hobby by selling the fruits of my labor. This shop was a natural outgrowth of slowly amassing an inventory of my wildlife-inspired creations. Most recently I began getting into woodworking after a wrist injury prevented the fine motions required for my realistic drawings, while allowing the use of power tools. However, I've mostly regained my abilities and have taken up oil painting on top of the jewelry making, pastel painting, graphite drawings, and digital works I have previously learned. Who knows what medium with which I will become obsessed next?
