I just LOVE this guy!! Julian Voss-Andreae is a superbly talented artist and sculptor, who creates sculptural images of proteins, viruses, and DNA. He started out life as a scientist with a Master's degree in Physics.

I have long been fascinated with the chemical structure and composition of proteins. Had it not been for the career detour from degrees in biochemistry and molecular biology to graduate work in business and healthcare administration, I was originally intent on getting a Ph.D. in Protein Chemistry. Julian's artwork is something I hadn't considered as a legitimate expression of that interest. I really, really, like his work. Check out his website.
