Kindra Crick creates art that 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. Crick has a degree in Molecular Biology from Princeton University and a Certificate in Painting from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been influenced by the inspired marriage of her grandparents, the scientist Francis Crick and the artist Odile Crick. Kindra has exhibited throughout the U.S. and in the UK, including shows at the New York Hall of Science and MDI Biological Laboratory. Her work is included in the LMB permanent collection in Cambridge, England and has been featured in the Huffington Post, Science Magazine, SciArt Magazine and Oregon Arts Watch. In the fall of 2017, she was a featured artist on Oregon Art Beat and joined the Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology.
As part of NW Noggin, an arts-integrated neuroscience outreach group, Kindra created a neuroscience-inspired installation for the Phillips Collection in D.C. and gave an accompanying lecture at the Portland Art Museum. She enjoys living, working and drinking coffee in Portland, Oregon.
