March 16, 2013: Tiling One



Starting a new piece.

Last June, I visited La Alhambra and fell in love with its amazing tile-work, arches and gardens, which nurture and inspire the soul. With no expectation for my tiles to last hundreds of years, I’m creating them in Illustrator using high-resolution microscopy images of blood vessel cells (and cell parts) to form patterns.

Qutub Lab ( has given permission to use their beautiful cell images in this artwork. I do so with gratitude for their generosity and in awe of their research efforts.
