Watercolor painting depicting cell division

artologica_celldivide.jpg Artist Michele Banks uses watercolor to depict natural, scientific, and medical phenomena. This one above shows cell divisions (note that it's not meant to be completely accurate); another one I like is a bright blue canvas with a single line showing someone's heart rate. Her work is available for sale in the Makers Market/Boing Boing Bazaar!

  1. It’s beautiful and I’d like to listen to A Very Cellular Song (Incredible String Band) while looking at it

  2. Ah, so pretty! I can totally see it as framed art in healthcare offices. So bright and positive. Love watercolors, love biology. Awesome!

  3. Hi guys – it’s the artist here. Just wanted to mention that I’ll showing my work at the Maker Faire in NY on September 25-26. Come check it out IRL : )

  4. I own two pieces of Michelle’s work. One I even commissioned from her. She has a wide range of styles and I look forward to purchasing more pieces.
