From Science to Art.
I haven’t written a blog before, but have kept personal journals for many years. My name is Beric and from 1990 – the year I got my PhD in molecular biology – until the end of 2015 I was a professional scientist in Australia and I think quite successful. Now I am a full time artist. The transition, to me, was not really a sudden one, although when it happened it shocked many people, especially colleagues. I guess I will explain bits of this long process in subsequent entries. But for the moment, I am now a full time creative working in an idyllic environment, a coastal town called Port Macquarie on the mid-north coast of New South Wales. I have my own studio and small art gallery (Ultragrafik Fine Art) in the middle of town and setting up collaborations with artists both in Australia and overseas, much as I did when I was in science. Pop back occasionally as I intend to voice my opinions in this forum on a range of art and science topics, and hoping it will be of interest to people!
