Drawing is important and fundamental to my art practice.

It begins essentially with the conscious act of observation and
the recognition of artistic possibilities.

I consider drawing an important foundation in my practice as an artist.  Drawing is a conscious act of perception; it begins, with or without the use of drawing materials, when I look at any object with focused attention.  From this experience drawing from memory becomes also a pleasurable experience.


My drawing sometimes begs an analytical process in the attempt to understand the form of an object and its relationship with the space it occupies; or it could be expressive, when the characteristic nature of the drawing material lends itself to experimental mark-making to express feeling responses.  Often, though,
I apply both these approaches in the
same drawing.
