2018 in Review. What’s Next?

Falling Sideways The Finished Piece

Creating One Art Piece from Multiple Images

One of the challenges with taking pictures through the microscope is the instrument’s limited field of view. At low magnification, I can see the vastness of the crystals but not their fine detail. When I switch to a higher magnification, the crystals’ detail shows but at the expense of seeing less crystals. Frequently, I like both the large crystal picture and their fine detail. How to have my cake and eat it too? One way is to take a series of photographs moving the microscope slide ever so slightly with each shot and then try to “stitch” them together later on my computer, creating a single art piece from multiple images of the same crystal.

Creating SciArt for the Public Art Arena

I have been fortunate to merge my love for science, experimentation and discovery with my love for creating art by growing infinitesimally minute crystals and recording artistic scenes by photographing them through the microscope. I recently decided to foray into the public art arena.

Small Prints Now Available on Etsy

Not everyone has the space for a large 24” x 36” aluminum print. Some people just want small prints to hang in small areas or maybe displayed on a mantle or bookshelf.

During the past several years I’ve been asked if I have small prints of my art. I always had to say no. I was disappointed that I could not accommodate my customers who loved my art but only had a small niche or just the right spot to display my micro-crystal art. I took it to heart and had a small number of my images printed in 4” x 6” and 5” x 7” sizes.
