Faces of BME – Jennifer M.

PhD candidate at Zandstra Lab

On social media there is an increasing number of scientists who are being vocal about their passions, successes, and struggles, which makes the scientist figure more accessible and relatable. Hopefully this will build trust between the scientific community and those outside of it. I like to use art as a medium to reach out to a broader audience.

My favourite brushes are these two tiny ones because I like doing a lot of detailed work. I am not the most patient person, but I can spend hours upon hours refining one piece of artwork, fully immersed in a flow state.
