Artist Statement

This series came from my experience as a female scientist and engineer. I realized I knew the names of several famous male scientists, but I knew hardly any women who had been influential in the field.

This exhibit allows the viewer to experience the scientists as paintings in mixed media while offering the opportunity to learn something about their work. These women accomplished extravagant things against all odds, and should be recognized as inspirational "Conceivers" of many modern technologies and ideas.

I hope to expand the series beyond this show, making more paintings, prints, and merchandise to bring notoriety to the women featured, as well as donate some of the proceeds to groups working with women and girls in STEM.
