ART / WRITING / SCIENCE
I am a self-taught abstract artist, using intuitive mark-making to chart my emotional response to music. I’ve performed live onstage alongside musicians and orchestras, most often to contemporary classical. I also keep sketchbooks and illustrated journals during my travels, most recently 6 months of #vanlife in New Zealand.
My first trunk novel was about an artist’s frustrated muse, stuck inside someone’s head and plotting escape. I’m currently working on a modern-but-magical retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
I’ve been a biologist, a project manager, and an organizational development specialist, working in environmental and engineering project management for the last 10+ years. Currently, I’m excited about science communication - explaining how the science works, and why it matters. I’m interested in technology, philosophy, the natural world and their implications to human lives and stories.
