2021 and Aesthetic Instincts: The Intersection of Art and Science
I have continued my artistic journey with Santiago Ramón y Cajal. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, 2021 has been an extremely productive year. I have continued an active engagement in my artistic series about Cajal. To that end, new opportunities include: selections from that series were featured in the international publication UpperCase (featured July 28 on this blog in the ¡Muchas gracias! post), I had a solo exhibition of the entire series in Las Vegas, and works from the series were chosen as featured artwork in the 75th Anniversary Exhibition for the Fulbright Foundation (held online).
I presented a lecture about Santiago Ramón y Cajal to CSN students, faculty and the general public of the greater Las Vegas area on October 19, 2021.
It was an honor to have my work selected and featured in the 75th Anniversary of the Fulbright Foundation. The time I spent at the Instituto Cajal was priceless and life changing. When I began this series, I never dreamed that I would have access to his original journals, sketchbooks, personal photographs, histology slides, scientific equipment and personal objects.

I currently have 10 drawings from my Fulbright research on display at the Instituto Cajal in celebration of its 100th Anniversary. Below are two of the drawings from that display.
