Michael E. Degnan, MSc, BFA was born in Buffalo, NY, and has always had an interest in human faces and their importance to one’s quality of life. While pursuing an undergraduate degree in Medical Illustration, Degnan was introduced to Ocularistry and the possibilities of facial rehabilitation with prosthetic treatment. Degnan's interests in fine art, visualization, and scientific processes all dovetail within the areas of biological design, biological engineering, and biomimicry. These fields examine natural and biological designs for structural solutions to formal problems. Contact the artist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
