Drawn From Life

“Following my studies, I returned to exclusively drawing for a period of time. I felt the primacy of drawing would encourage me to return to something basic and familiar.

The development of a personal language through drawing, as a vehicle to convey meaning and ideas, has remained central to my practice. Through drawing, I endeavour to express the frailties of life and the human condition.

The layering of marks is a way of building and reflecting on experience. I work intuitively to create expressive drawings which aim to capture the subtleties found in both gesture and movement. Each mark is unique and documents a moment in time, my observations and responses are distilled into line.

In addition, I believe the quality and range of marks encourages the viewer to reflect upon the complexities and expressions found within the spectrum of human nature.”
