alKamie aRT: An Experimentalist's Creative Outlet 

Alchemy is a protoscience and philosophy based on the transmutation of matter, with many aspects of modern chemistry and medicine having their roots in alchemy. As a scientist, I'm fascinated by alchemy and how magical it may have seemed to early practicers. As an artist, I aim to take materials and turn them into something different, something more than the sum of their parts—to turn base matter into gold.

While I once focused on representational art (especially portraits), I discovered my passion for abstract expressionism while working on my doctorate in chemical biology. It gave me the freedom to break from precision and protocols. Now, I combine my scientific curiosity with my drive to create in my experiments with techniques, mediums, and colors.
