LOST IN A WORLD OF INTRICATE OBSERVATIONS FROM NATURE
A chance opportunity brought a small twig with tiny crab apples and now I'm captivated by the way Lichen grows and enjoy searching for just the right stick. Entranced by the cycle of growth and decay, I capture the details on beautiful smooth Strathmore bristol board using ultra sharp pencils. It’s quiet in the studio, distanced from the world as I look ever closer at plants, insects and birds. Texture, shadows, silhouettes and movement created with marks and tone, it’s rarely about the colour.
Recent work concentrates on the detail through the Lichen, Floral and Insect Drawings and Etchings alongside some experimentation with Graphite and Silverpoint.
