Welcome to my World Beyond Science
My career is spent as a plant evolutionary biologist, but I have many interests beyond the work I do as a scientist. My science background has led me into an exploration of art - particularly in working with wood. I have also discovered the joys of painting, and the skills I’ve gained through the photography I use to document the plants I study as a scientist have led to an exploration of many genres in photography.
This website is dedicated to my explorations in art. I am primarily a wood artist, working with biologically-inspired motifs. I will also include examples of my photography and painting, just for my own enjoyment.
I hope you enjoy exploring this site. I will include articles from time-to-time in my blog section (Notes and Thoughts), just to add some background information on the making of particular pieces, or to share things I find of interest.
