I have spent my career in the biotechnology field, in my own way trying to help industry leaders discover a cure for cancer. Having had family members, friends, and colleagues affected by this disease and not surviving, I turned to my painting to express my desire to one day find a cure. This painting is acrylic on rice paper, measuring 60 × 15, and is called “Fade to White.”

Roberta Smigel, who works in biotechnology, has had family members, friends, and colleagues touched by cancer. She made this painting in hopes of one day finding a cure for this disease that affects so many.
