Artist's description of medium: "Banana fiber comes from the stalk of the plant which is thrown away after the bananas are used, Each little piece of fiber has to be cleaned and cut to size with a razor blade, and sorted by color. I sketch a drawing on plywood, then apply banana fiber to provide, color, shadow, depth and shape to the drawing, The fibers are glued onto the plywood, then a coating of clear varnish is applied."
