Abstract: I arrived in Portugal to learn the science of glass and to develop as an artist using glass. Fascinated by science and the mysterious world it presents, I started in earnest to try to express that new awareness as it collided with my internal world. What is the connection between art and science? Grappling with this question I began to explore. These explorations expressed in projects, gave voice to how I feel about the totality of this potent experience. Here I will examine three of my artistic endeavours: Glass/Glace, an outdoor installation on the FCT campus; Observations, a solo exhibition on the FCT campus; and my thesis exhibition Velas Içadas presented at the Museu da Água, Reservatório da Patriarcal in Lisbon. These presentations of my work show my development. They also suggest how the stimulus of the scientific study and the experience of living in this foreign land can develop artistic practice as it changes the artist. A crucial moment in that growth was the realization that science can be an inspiration without being the subject of my art. In my thesis exhibition, in order to understand where I was and the emotions that I had, I looked back in time using the history of my island home of Newfoundland and its five century old relationship with Portugal. Using historical maps and icons of sea exploration as well as personal symbols, such as the rose, I came to a greater understanding of not only these shared histories but of myself and my world.
