In drawing from life I aim to capture the essence of the moment. This succeeds when the right mark is made in the right place, it is even better when that mark is unique, has found a new way of describing.
I love the simplicity and intimacy of pencil drawings, the grainy texture, soft and sharp, with a light sheen, all within one medium. You can find the artist’s response to the environment, what details are picked up, how they are described and equally significant what is omitted. The artist is fully exposed.
