Throughout all my work I have been influenced by a variety of medical/ scientific images. Anatomical photos of gross, interior anatomy; electron micrography depicting the microscopic and heretofore invisible; and the new method of specimen preservation known as Plastination are all strong influences on/ references for my work. In these mixed media drawings, I have preferred to abstract from my source material to create looser, more suggestive, open ended images with which the viewer can connect in more subtle ways.
