What was the inspiration behind your artwork?

I capture detailed images of rocks and minerals to inspire people to become fascinated with our planet. 

The Waterfall. Willemite (Green) Calcite (Red) and non- fluorescent  Franklinite (Black) transitioning between 254nm shortwave UV to full  spectrum light, then back again. A three pound old-mine piece from the  legendary Franklin Mine in Franklin, NJ. Collected by an employee of the mine between 1917 and 1954.

What do you see as the similarity between science and art? Why is science-art important in today’s society?

Science and Art have been inextricably intertwined for their entire existences. Art and Science are both attempts to capture what begins as an abstract concept. A thought, a realization or an experience that inspires a need to discover, codify and express somehow. Different people use different means, but the spark of inspiration, leading to fascination, is identical. They are both vital methods of reflection for a society upon itself and capture, linear, historically-comparable expressions of changing ideas and values over time when viewed objectively.
