About  Me

I am a living, breathing antonym! The thesaurus states that 'scientist' and 'artist' are opposites and yet I am both. Luckily, my left and right brains see eye to eye through the lens. As a botanist and artist, I love nature, photography and learning. The scientist in me likes to know the reasons why/how things work, while the artist just wants beauty.
