I am inspired by electron microscope images of life forms. I am drawn to an examination of these cells which possess a universal attraction for the viewer. In deliberately exaggerating the decorative qualities of microscopic cell imagery, I entice the onlooker into a close examination of scientific subject matter. Through the beauty of the abstracted elements of cells I construct images which are mysterious yet reveal something of the basic elements of all life. I aim to provoke the viewer's perception of what we should consider pleasing to the eye.
