"I tend to work quickly with concentration to put the essence onto paper. Portrait drawing from life for me is an absolute challenge.The amount of expressions, gestures, moods, habits and interaction that people show is incredibly complex. With Landscapes/still life I love the play between different shapes, colours textures and really explore pattern and line within the piece. The use of line is the foremost expression as drawing or drawing in paint, gives the art the energy I'm looking for. The direction I take is organic and figurative in nature. Always to create a "living feeling." Whether it is a Gold forged wire curling around the nape of the neck, through to a few chosen marks onto canvas or paper."
