An art and science blog using art to engage the public with life at the molecular level

I am a senior post-doctoral molecular biologist at the University of Bristol using DNA engineering, protein biochemistry and automated fluorescence microscopy to study hormone signalling. Rather unusually I discovered my love of cell biology through art, making paintings while studying for a fine art degree. On this blog I post about my creative work (drawing, paintings and scientific illustration), its association with my scientific practice together with my public engagement activities.
