As a Biology teacher and Artist I have always been intrigued by the intricacies in nature. For the past few years I have focused on combining scientific imagery with portraiture, to create pieces that have a layered and sometimes abstract appearance. So far I have used images of the inner ear, lungs, cross sections of the heart, skin and eye, and recently a Nautilus, within my pieces. I try to keep the drawings as anatomically accurate as I can, but then play with different patterns and colours to keep them modern.
The layering of portraiture with another image is not always immediately obvious to the viewer. Can you see the hidden images in my pieces?
