Artist: Teresa Fortin
Artist Bio: I am a lab technician in the Department of Neuroscience at Carleton University. My speciality is Histology
Description: Histology uses a wide variety of dyes to stain different cell components. My friend and
histology mentor Brigitte always thought it would be very interesting to do an art piece
using only histology stains. I took this idea and painted with water soluble stains such
as acid fucshin and fast green. All colours in this piece are certified biological stains that I stole from Alfie’s Lab.
