Live drawing is at the root of my work, it is what I enjoy and can lose myself in. Movement is key; to be immersed within it, as well as to capture it.

Risk in the act-of-making is what I continuously seek. There has to be some kind of challenge that holds my attention and keeps my response alive.

My work can interact with ‘anything’; collaborations include danceoperamusic, lyrical text and verbatim and Artificial Intelligence offering a multi-disciplinary and multi-platform experience with at the core high quality and distinctive art.

Double Dutch or a 'Lecture on drawing'?

I have this desire to know. Everything begins with, but Why? Why does this work, and why, why doesn’t that work? And also with, I wonder? I wonder if I apply this, would it be better, would it be more interesting and have more meaning? So how, how can we do this?

I love it when a landscape evolves as you draw, swinging cranes hoisting and lowering, trucks and cherry pickers coming and going, whistles blowing and horns booming, gulls and then there is the people - my mannies! I like it when they are at their best, most natural - absorbed in work and play, and at one with their environment.

The Shelter and how it began

The Shelter is an interdisciplinary collaboration combining live drawing in Japanese ink, a multi-voiced verbatim, music and sound performance. Originally developed by Visual Artist Kate Steenhauer and Creative Writer Shane Strachan, supported by Aberdeen Performing Arts and performed at the Lemon Tree in April 2018, The Shelter has been further enhanced with Composer Ross Whyte.
