Painter, life drawing

Joining a life class re-awakened a love of drawing that had been a long time dormant.

I enjoy working in all types of media but I particularly love the immediacy of chalk pastels and the unpredictability of inks and collage. Colour is important to me. I find colour inspirational whether as part of a subject or as a medium.

I strive to produce work that is both bold and free but has a degree of accuracy that satisfies my innate need for things to be ‘right’. I love the challenge of drawing from life. The task never gets any easier but never gets less enjoyable.
