Happy Creative Busy 


I was asked last week twice; "why are you working on two totally different things; art and science?"
My answer was that "I do not see any difference in being engaged with beauty and creativity. I see what is good and beautiful. I think of what contributions I can make with my creativity. I communicate the results with unique ways of visualization.

I add science to art
I add art to science.
