Genomic-Themed Fine Art Prints
I’ve titled these genomic-themed fine art prints “Polyforms.” It’s a playful variation on a many-sided, two-dimensional, mathematical figure called a polygon. As you can see, They’re one large square shape made up of smaller squares.
I cut the small squares from larger prints. A whole mess of them! Then sort the pieces into similar color groups into piles around me like paint on a palette. Arranging the pieces this way and that until the composition looks just right — is challenging but enthralling.
You’ll spot tiny multicellular organisms and fossils, strands of DNA, RNA, and dancing chromosomes. When completed, I digitize and print the image with archival materials for longevity and beautiful color.

Dancing Helix Prints
These genomic-themed fine art prints are titled “Dancing Helix.” The flowing patterns are inspired by the iconic, twined shape of the double helix.
Each image starts with pencil sketches to shape ideas. Then I paint portions of the drawings with ink and brushes. Next step: combine the handmade paintings with digital drawing tools, adding layers and layers of translucent color to overlapping shapes. Last step: I print the finished images with pigment inks on 100% rag paper.
The SciArt Collection
All the genomic-themed fine art prints in my SciArt Collection are made with a mix of traditional and digital media. Starting with pencil sketches, I add watercolor shapes with ink and brush and then digitize the paintings.
That’s when fun-with-color begins. Using digital drawing tools, I select a color palette and develop the lines and shapes into a finished work. Then I print on museum-quality, rag paper with pigment inks — materials designed to work together to print intense, rich colors and last a long time.
