“Doing artwork has always brought me great pleasure. Although I have also greatly enjoyed doing science, i.e., it has been challenging and satisfying to attack and hopefully solve biological problems, doing my artwork seems to take me to another dimension. Although there is some scientific debate about right brain vs left-brain, for me it seems very clear that when doing science, I was functioning as left-brain and when doing art I was functioning right brain. Both are quite wonderful, but right brain gives me greater personal joy. If other people can appreciate my artwork, so much the better. I really enjoy talking about art and trying to understand how others look at art. My current view of the world we live in is that there is so much turmoil and hatred that doing my art allows me to escape on the one hand, but also to incorporate my views of the world in another way. In a world as troubled as ours, each person must find his/her own island of tranquility.”
