My background in Chemisrty

Part of the reason why, I’m aware of the chemistry of artist materials, is because I did part of a “Conversation of Cultural materials course” but quit the degree it to go to art school instead. It did however force me to do two years of chemistry at the university level and that came in handy when I started to retrain myself as a professional artist after Art school.
