Starting with sketches of images gleaned from animated film and medical illustrations, the painting is alternately layered and simplified and the positive and negative is explored. Through the use of traditional and non-traditional tools and printing techniques that include brushes, rollers, scrapers, masking and resist products and cake decorating tools, surface texture is emphasized. The paint is thinly washed on in some areas and built up as thick as an inch in others. The final painting falls somewhere between textbook and comic book.
