Art Prints of Historical Women Scientists

San Francisco, California | 13 Sales

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 letter was a way to teach people about them in a positive light, without reference to the fact that they were overlooked.

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.

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

    Thank you, Lise is beautiful! I'm attaching the Marie Curie one I had framed too. These two will hang in our hallway and keep an eye on the elements.

    This is simply stunning. The print is very high quality and looks like an original unless you're looking at it up close. I'm having it professionally framed with museum quality materials because it's going to hang in my kitchen, an ode to Marie's cooking pitchblende to source radium. Very happy with my purchase! I'll enjoy this for years to come.
