About me

Laura LecceAs a medical research scientist by trade, I decided to create this website as an outlet for my creative side. A showcase of the paintings and photographs which I have put my energy into, along with a short story about each one. Through my blog, you will discover that I love color, nature and traveling. I hope to inspire people to explore all avenues of themselves, as we should never have to be defined by just one title. I am happiest when I am allowed to collectively live my life as a scientist, artist, photographer, writer, and many other things. I believe that hobbies and other interests are the essence of what makes people unique. I hope to share mine with you.

    1. Hi Gary, yes I’m so glad I stumbled upon your blog today. We most definitely have some similar interests, and I hope we both find time to visit each other’s worlds quite often!


  3. Thank you for dropping by my blog, Laura! Your site looks excellent. I absolutely agree with you. I wouldn’t want to be defined by my day job alone. It’s our passions, hobbies and experiences that make us individuals and I look forward to reading about yours.

    1. Thank Karen, so nice to know people agree with me. I work with way too many people that make their job their life, but I think its really important to have other things you are passionate about.

  4. Hi Laura!

    I was beside myself when I read your “about me.” I’m in the same boat as you–medical researcher by day, writer and artist by night. I totally agree with your statement that “hobbies and other interests are the essence of what makes people unique,” and I look forward to seeing more products of your well-spent creative energy!

    1. Hello Miles,
      Thank you so much for visiting. It is uncanny how similar our paths are to each other. I have to say, I have rarely met scientists who also have a creative streak… I think we are a rare breed. I have met people who think that you cannot do both well, but actually I think using my creativity drives better science. I look forward to exploring your blog,
      Kind regards,


  5. You are a great contradiction! Scientist and artist… I thought I was alone with this title 😉
    I look forward to reading your posts. I’ve not read many yet and surely would figure this out soon, however I’m curious where you’re located? I love learning about different places, and the different plants and nature of the world.
    Happy blogging!!

    1. Welcome Ilex, thank you for visiting. What a gorgeous and unique name you have!
      I thought I was the only scientist/artist until I wrote this blog… turns out there are a few of us! Though I still like to think that we are a precious find 😉
      I grew up in Australia (which is where many of my photos are taken) but now I live in Manhattan, so many of my photos also come from the travel I’ve been doing since living here. I look forward to exploring your blog…I think we probably share many interests. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. I really love your colourful life philosophy. Through photography we get to see how well Nature blends and contrasts colours. Love your blog and your photos. Can I ask what sort of camera you use. The clarity in your photos is awesome.

    1. Hi Linny, thank you for visiting and for your lovely compliments. By looking at your blog I see we have a similar appreciation for colour and nature. The part of the world you call home looks incredibly beautiful! I use a Nikon DSLR camera (an older model which I cannot remember the numbers of). I have to say that my favourite purchase has been a macro lens which I use most of the time. It allows me to appear much closer to animals and bugs without actually being close at all.


      1. Hi Laura. I thought the same thing when I first saw your blog. I love the colours of nature. No one can pull a pallette of colours together better then Mother Nature. I use different sorts of autofocus cameras including my iphone. We just invested in a new camera with a fantastic inbuilt zoom it is a the one I have used to get the bird photos and grevillea photos. The clarity is excellent . I can see the difference when comparing the bird photos to the bee photos in my early blogs. I will enjoy following your blog and looking at your photos. Have a great day from the land down under.
