For me, art and science are inextricably linked. I've been crafting, sketching, and painting my whole life, and over the last few years have nurtured a particular passion for watercolor and pyrography (the art of wood burning). I collect bones and especially love putting art onto functional objects, hence all the skulls and coasters!
