Dubai 2012:  This year has seen the scientific expression of my soul creep from medical communications into the realm of art. My love of forensics, medical illustration, anatomy and physiology has prompted me to experiment with how I could blend my love for science with the arts, through hands on paintings and sculpture.

I am currently working on the painting on the skull with a bit of a fantasia effect. There is a lot of work that cannot be seen through the photo. I have actually used some interesting texture for the background. I hope to have this painting ready in time for ARTE souk at Times Square Dubai on Friday, the 13th of July 2012.

The creation of the skull sculpture led to my experiment with painting as well as creating skull cufflinks as shown below. These are made with polymer clay and sterling silver and each has an individual look.  Only a few pairs will be showcased at ARTE. You can, of course, place an order, in case the cufflinks are sold out at the ARTE fair.
