My work is about finding resonant ways to express hidden aspects of Nature and the journey of discovery. This research has taken me to the heart of the atom, the beginnings of the universe and the essence of light. I have bachelor’s degrees in Physics and Painting and in 2011 received a Leverhulme Trust Artist in Residence Award for a residency at the Physics Department of Imperial College London. I am happy to be working with scientists at various places including: Imperial College London, Oxford, Durham and Cambridge Universities and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 2020 I received the American Institute of Physics Gemant Award, given annually to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the cultural, artistic or humanistic dimension of physics.
Though I arrived as a painter, I have explored various media to share perspectives on the experience of discovery and some of the beautiful things we know through art including printed fabrics, books, film, text, podcasts, talks and large installations such as advertising billboards and a sunshine powered cinema.
Together with artist and scientist colleagues I also create workshops for children and grown-ups that combine discussion, experimentation, art and dance to resonantly explore and celebrate our knowledge and place in the universe.
My current projects include working with scientists to help share the drama and intricacy of building and choreographing molecules; revealing Nature’s hidden patterns in textiles and paintings; and introducing nine year old children to the world of atoms and their delicate interactions with light.
