Science-inspired art by Sienna Morris, drawn entirely with numbers and equations by hand. Based in Portland, Oregon, Sienna is self taught in science and art, and uses her Numberism technique to process what she's learned, illustrating the data where it lives. 

She offers original work as well as fine art canvas and paper prints, and clothing of her work.

This is the original Numberism drawing of "Messenger", drawn by hand with ink on watercolor wash, and hand embellished with phosphorescent paint, making it glow at night. The image is 12" x 16" and is framed and ready to hang. It is signed and comes with a certificate of authenticity and a magnifying glass. 

Drawn entirely with numbers and equations relating to the nebula's distance, temperature and variables necessary for star formation within the nebula. Check below for the full description.

The Eagle Nebula is a HII nebula, and is primarily composed of ionized atomic Hydrogen or HII. 
The wavelength for molecular Hydrogen is 656.281, which gives the nebula a red coloring. 
The majority of the main “body” is drawn with that wavelength. 
These Nebulae are also composed of about 20% Helium and trace amounts of heavier elements. 
HII Nebula reach upwards of 10,000 K. This data is also drawn in the main “body” of the nebula.

The Eagle Nebula is 6,500 light years away, which is the data the space around the nebula is drawn with. 
The stars themselves are drawn with the speed of light, 299,792,458 m/s. 
Given that this Nebula is about 6,500 light years away, we are seeing it as it was about 6,500 years ago. 
According to the Spitzer Space Telescope, The Pillars of Creation were most likely destroyed 
by a nearby super nova around six thousand years ago. 
It will take another 500 – 1,000 years for the image of it’s destroyed state to reach us.

The majority of the “snail” part of the nebula is drawn with Jean’s Instability equation, 
which expresses the parameters which cause the collapse of interstellar gas clouds and subsequent star formation. 
In general, the cloud is unstable if it is either very massive at a given temperature or very 
cool at a given mass for gravity to overcome the gas pressure. 
It occurs when the internal gas pressure is not strong enough to prevent gravitational collapse 
of a region filled with matter.

There are also some hidden lines drawn in here, which I will leave for you to find for yourself.
