William Emboden Ph.D., F.L.S.
William Emboden has published seven books, coauthored two others, and is the sole author of two hundred and fifty articles. He has served as professor of biology in two California universities. His five year Presidential Appointment at Harvard University and lectureships at UCLA and Oxford University are a part of a distinguished academic career during which he was awarded Outstanding Professor. Emboden’s foray into art began with his early, meticulous, botanical drawings. His talent led him to create by employing a variety of media. His studies with two leading European artists — an Italian and a German — his appreciation of ancient scripts and global museum visits opened his mind to a wide concept
of art and artistic methods. His expansive interests and artistic techniques have culminated in internationally acclaimed art exhibitions. Privately collected, he is enjoying his quiet celebrity. This book explores and touches on his many endeavors. It is the first work to treat Emboden’s artistic talents as a true marriage of poetry and science. This book is a revelation of the great diversity of his art and the new language with which he creates.
