A Bird’s Simple Song
14.75″ W x 8.25″ H
Mixed media on wood. Framed.
Contrary to what one might think, a bird’s song is anything but simple; hence, the touch of sarcasm in the title. In the midst of my research on neuro-genesis, I came across a most interesting scientific discovery of the songbird’s brain, specifically the canary, which has been proven to possess the unique ability to regenerate neural pathways when learning new seasonal songs.
If even birds were created with this amazing ability, what about us? Can we not also learn new songs for new seasons?

About the Neuron Series
My expressive paintings on neuron-centric subject matter advocate for communities in the realms of rare disease, neuroscience, and mental health. The content originated with my daughter’s rare genetic disorder. I became intrigued by the complexity and beauty of the human brain, inspired by the hope of its ability to re-circuit around inflicted damage.
I bring expressionistic, experiential fine art to the scientific community, yet incorporate scientific research and structure into the world of artistic expression. While the genre of digital neuro imaging is emerging, my unique approach weaves this ground-breaking content with human experience, creativity and painterly tradition - supporting fine art’s foothold amidst the growing influence of technology. My imagery intentionally blurs the lines of the abstract and physiological - recognizable as neurons to those with a trained eye but inclusive to all who are curious.
