Microscopy is a group of articles documenting the journey of discovery of my explorations of the miniature world through my microscopes.  This is a new path I am taking to show that the hidden world is as beautiful as the natural world that we can all see. The inspirations from my studies will form a continuing body of work, that at first glance might appear abstact paintings but are in fact the accurate reality of the world unseen.  The micro world is a huge topic and as my studies evolve, they may need to branch into different sections. I will follow my heart and see where it leads me.

    My painting “I Am Woman” is in the Disability Arts Cymru Annual Touring Exhibition, and I am delighted it has been selected to tour around Wales with 25 art works by other artists.

    The theme this year is “On The Edge”, and I chose my subject based on the fight for equality of women, and how even though it is 100 years since we were allowed to vote, we are still on the edge in many areas of the modern political and economic world. It is a statement and a celebration of I Am Woman.

    Working in collaboration with another artist stretches the mind

    It’s a good day in the art studio even when I don’t pick up a single paint brush. Working in collaboration with another artist is very rewarding.   Following on from my last blog post, Susan Zeppellini came to join me the other day for a session of exploration of nature through the lens of a microscope. There is so much to explore. So far together, we’ve looked at the cellular level of a flower, bracket fungi and lichen on trees, and the remnants

    When Science Meets Art The Possibilities Are Endless

    My love of science at school paralleled my love of art. Flowers have always been a source of inspiration for me, and now I can zoom in far beyond what the eye can see. I have a microscope! But it’s not quite as straight forward as that, so I am in the process of learning a new skill (making specimen slides) in order to take my nature paintings to another level.
