I was a molecular biologist, now draw to art. I paint, make collages, photograph nature. I find the noticeable similarities in the process of making art and doing scientific research, both requiring an open mind, a free spirit, and many bold experiments.
In this series of photographs Iris Queen was partially inspired by L. Gayle Orf poem The Iris: A Regal Queen.
