My paintings are influenced by images from botanical and medical books, cartoons and advertising. The images are deconstructed, reinvented combined, overlapped, erased and reformed. The structures amass, combine and overlap. The positive and negative space is explored and the painting process emphasized to create new images that are hybrids of science, memory and pop culture.
