Sparks of Life

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. The songbird then became a symbol of hope in my work and began emerging among the neurons. This painting is a visual encouragement for us to continue in hope, even through season’s of hardship, because our brain’s have the capability to spark new life and create neural pathways which can miraculously recircuit around areas of damage.
This is one of the initial pieces of the Neuron Series.

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.
