For me drawing is the basis, the underpinning, the compost, if you like, for the all the visual arts. Its difficulties lie not in the hand or eye, but with the self-conscious mind. Sadly, by adulthood most of us have censored out nine-tenths of the visual world (Don’t stare child!) and content ourselves by seeing only what we “know” to be there. While in actual fact men and women, flowers, dogs, and hats, look far more curious, strange and wonderful, than we have permitted ourselves to believe. So it is with visual curiosity I would like to approach the world, and have my work in its several forms so approached.

My drawings are in rag paper, often of intermediate tone. A graphite stick or 6B pencil is used, and sometimes touches of pastel pencil are added.
