In the process of writing magpie&whiskeyjack I come across a virtual wunderkammer, a cabinet of curiosity of marvellous art at the fertile intersection of art and science. In fact, most posts are tagged 'art about science'. This page is a resource for getting your hands on some of this art/science.

I've gathered some collections of my favorite science, natural history and electronic or interactive wares on Etsy. In these collections you'll find a lot of art about science, and the sorts of things gathered by magpie&whiskeyjack, both handmade and vintage items. There's everything from chemical element flashcards, to great graphic design about anatomy, to art inspired by biological specimen, to astronomical housewares and fashion, to portraits of scientists (in every medium from fine art to finger puppets), to mathematical art books, to molecular jewellery, to Earth science housewares, to quantum mechanical prints, to electronic art, to cabinets of curiosity art, to handmade toys of rare and obscure animals and more! These curated collections are growing daily, so you can check back here for more finds.

These collections do not include my own work; if you're interested in minouette prints about science, scientists or natural history, scroll down and follow the links there.

Some of the specific items featured on magpie&whiskeyjack will be posted below.

My own work, as printmaker/marine geophysicist is often influenced by the themes of science, the history of science and natural history. My own portforlio is itself a cabinet of curiosity.
