I’ve often been accused of being two things- a hippie and a nerd.Â IÂ am a bit of a free spirit and I doÂ read for fun but I don’t know if I have quite deserved those titles. However, both my hippie and nerdy tendencies stood at attention when I came across this artist. Her name is Michele Banks, and she’s a Washington D.C. based painter who works in watercolor. The wet-on-wet technique she uses makes her paintings look almost like tie dye but her subject matter is purely scientific (cell division, mitosis etc.), thus fusing my two normally mismatched traits beautifully.
FYI, she sells originals only, no prints, so you know you are getting a one of a kind piece. You can check out more of her work at Maker’s Market
