With a background of "hands on art" such as painting with acrylics, carving and sculpting I was hesitant, at first, about the amount of "art high" I could get from "computer art".
Four years later I am working as the in-house Graphic Designer for a cutting edge Biotech company- BioSource International.
I am creating images that represent my interpretation of such things as Cells secreting proteins, antibodies, dna,..etc.
With no science background this is very challenging for me.

With textbooks and journals we research articles and begin the journey that results in the images your are seeing.
We are often very excited with the outcome.
