Kindra Crick is a multimedia artist who gives visual expression to the wonder and process of scientific inquiry and discovery. In her installations and layered mixed-media work she incorporates drawings, diagrams, maps, and imagery from under the microscope. She is fascinated by the human brain - our complex machine - which can fathom the beginning of time and the nature of its own thought. Crick has a degree in Molecular Biology from Princeton and a Certificate in Painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited in the US and UK, including shows at the Littman Gallery at PSU, the New York Hall of Science and MDI Biological Laboratory. Her artworks are in numerous private and public collections including the LMB collection in Cambridge, England, the Gordon Gilkey Print Center at the Portland Art Museum and the Jordan Schnitzer Collection. Her work has been featured in Science Magazine, HuffPost, SciArt Magazine, PBS NewsHour CANVAS, and on The daVinci Pursuit.
