Art and the microscope.


I make photographic images using a microscope (usually a powerful electron microscope) as my lens.

Plants, insects and industrial materials are my sources.
The giclee prints are on high quality printmaking paper.

Merging the boundaries of art and science, my images hope to convey the beauty, intricacy and mystery of the world we don't see.
