Drawing is an instinctive process that enables me to directly translate from mind to paper without fear or pressure of error. There is fluidity in drawing that cannot be achieved via other mediums, coupled with a true sense of immediacy.
It is the primary stage of a picture and the beginning of its realisation when pencil is put to paper or canvas; from this point I can see the overall image evolve. Beginning with a mark, each work emerges through a stream of sub-consciousness. It is part of an organic process, where a point becomes a line and in turn becomes a picture.

Each piece can be viewed as a contained environment with its life force pulsing and pushing against its boundaries. This can be interpreted in many ways, as both restrictive and oppressive as well as a space that can be nurturing or protective. The movement and growth within each piece is polarized with the controlled space. This tension brings another dimension, unable to see where the image within begins or ends, in turn becomes a journey within itself.

With this in mind the observer is possibly able to experience, if only for a moment, the balance and equilibrium required to create order out of chaos within our thoughts, feelings and life experiences.

As an artist, I welcome every opportunity to show my work to a wider audience and greatly appreciate any support, financial or critical, that enables me to reflect on my direction of travel and to sustain my practice.

Restrained within a pencil outline, the image within, lives and breathes its own form. Its movement grows after the drawing process when paint is applied. Accuracy and purity are very important factors, often not attempting to hide the pencil lines or surface beneath. My pictures are a sum of its parts and should be viewed equally. It is this balance of mediums that connects the pencil to the surface, the paint to the pencil in a meticulous manner. The complex systems and patterns are a product of the emotions that drive each piece and are captured within the obsessive structures.

Experiences and individual thoughts shape us as people and my work is a representation of me; being a living, active part of this process and expressing this within the confined parameters of a pencil outline.

Inspired by global contour lines and topographic maps, my current work is a culmination of a longstanding fascination in the unique nature of individual human experience combined with the habitation of a defined space.
