I am a Cardiac Nurse and our floor purchased this for one of our Cardiologists that is leaving. He was just as amazed by the creativity and talent that was put into this piece of art as I was. He stated it was one of the best gifts he had ever received! Thank you for sharing your talent with the Etsy community!

Exactly what we wanted. Great service, delivery and was everything it said it would be. It has sat in our hall since it arrived as we're not sure how to hang it properly, but that's for us to sort out. Such a conversation generator with kids and guests!

About

Inspired by Science, Drawn with Numbers

Sienna Morris created the technique “Numberism” in 2008, drawing realistic images entirely with tiny numbers and equations by hand, using pen, pencil or as etchings on scratchboard, metal or glass. These take hundreds of hours to draw and upwards of a year to research and plan.

Her first series “Perpetual Motion” focused on fleeting moments, drawn with the numbers of the clock, 1 – 12. This series sprang from her anxiety about time and helped root her in the present, knowing that even the best moments pass.

In 2010, she expanded her work to support her personal study of science. Her ongoing Math and Science series focuses on illustrating the beauty of the scientific world in its natural setting, showing others that science and math are beautiful, accessible aspects of our lives.

“There's more than one path to a scientific education. What most of us lacked in our experience with science and math was inspiration, play and imagination, which are the foundations of scientific excellence. By drawing these subjects with data that explains their function, I'm hoping to illustrate that everything we love is filled with numbers, physics and logic systems, and that it's a thing of beauty. Science isn't for certain kinds of people. It is our achievement as a species and we should all be able to celebrate it together.”

Sienna Morris is self taught in science and in art. Her personal education in science includes a wide range of reading material, open courseware, lectures, and research. Her background in art is also self propelled. With little formal training, Sienna has been self taught since she was a child. Her main background in art is trial and error, and an obsession to create. Before she started her Numberism technique, she worked in oil and acrylic, pencil and pen drawings, and a healthy dose of design work, which she used to support herself through her starving artist phase.

“Numberism gives me focus and and challenges me, motivating me to learn and create. Being inspired by science means I will never struggle with artists block again. There is an endless wealth of knowledge for me to learn, and rarely does a new learning experience fail to inspire”


Sienna has been based out of Portland, Oregon since 2009 and maintains a thriving business out of her home studio and gallery.

You can find her at the Portland Saturday Market every Saturday and Sunday from February 28th - December 24th. In 2015, you can find her in space 918.

Shipping
I make most of these to order, which means I need time to print, glaze, stretch and ship your art. If you purchase a glowing piece, I may need additional time to paint them if I don't already have them in stock. Please expect a 1 - 3 week delivery time. If you need your item sooner, please contact me to set up expedited shipping. If I have your item in stock, it will arrive in 1 week.

I use Click n ship via USPS shipping priority mail for every order and ship out every Tuesday. Over sized pieces are shipped UPS. Each is handled with care. You will receive a tracking number through USPS through the email you provide. Limited Edition prints come with insurance, a certificate of authenticity and a magnifying glass. If you need special handling or confirmation instructions, please contact me.


For shipping to anywhere outside the US and Canada, I ship the canvas print unstretched in a roll, which you can frame or stretch on arrival. Shipping these stretched is available upon request, however the shipping cost will be more. This option is not available for shipments going to Australia.

International orders should expect an additional week delivery time. Customs fees may apply.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you receive your print and there is any damage or complications, email me so we can come to a solution quickly. I will mail you out a new print once I receive the damaged piece.
If the piece became damaged over time due to ware and tear, I do not offer refunds. These are prepared to last, but taking special care to protect your artwork is always advisable. Avoid applying pressure to the front of the canvas and protect from scratching when in transit by wrapping your piece in bubble wrap (smaller bubble bubblewrap is better for this).
Additional policies and FAQs
All artwork on this site was originally created by Sienna Morris (me).

Everything is drawn entirely with numbers or equations. There are no lines. My Perpetual Motion series is drawn with the numbers of the clock, 1 - 12, to signify time in a fleeting moment, and are meant to remind us to appreciate the present. The Math and Science series is drawn with mathematical and scientific data relevant to the piece, to illustrate the underlying mathematical beauty of the natural world.

I create custom work based off of photograph or concept. You can choose any numbers you would like to use, though I prefer to be part of the research process. Custom pieces tend to cost $2,000 a square foot, though variation in detail or research time can allow for pieces costing more or less.
