Christine Iacobuzio-Donahue is a mixed media artist who works predominantly in acrylic and collage on wood. After earning a combined MD PhD degree she has largely explored her creative energy through the wonders of science, for example a collaboration with medical photographer Norman Barker to create the book Hidden Beauty: Exploring the Aesthetics of Medical Science. However, a series of life events combined with an ever-increasing desire to fulfill her creative energy has sparked her interest in pursuing art at a higher and more personal level.
In March of 2020 Christine enrolled in the Art2Life Creative Visionary Program founded by contemporary artist Nicolas Wilton. This three-month intensive online painting course, coincidentally timed with the requirement to work from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, provided her with the knowledge and support system for pursuing her dream of becoming an artist.
Christine currently serves as the Director of the David M. Rubenstein Center for Pancreatic Cancer Research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, USA.

My work is largely guided by my interest in science, nature and math although Tibetan Buddhism also plays a role. I aim to reflect the contrasts inherent to our experiences of the natural world both within and surrounding us; life versus death, order versus chaos, control versus randomness. These elements are reflected in my abstract art by bold patterns, saturated color or minimalistic design. However, true to my personality humor often finds its way into my work. Sometimes I am the only one who gets the joke, but that’s ok.
