Drawing has always been important to me. Using limited and simple materials can be very motivating – it helps to give me focus. It’s peaceful and meditative. A recording of feeling.
I love the marks that can be made using pencil. Its soothing grey spreads over the page and expresses the moment. I respond to the paper I’m using in whatever shape or form that may be, from a pristine new sketch book to an old medical ledger found in a junk shop. There is a unique reaction to each.
