Project Description

Drawing and Printmaking are my main interests.

The regular practice of life drawing informs my work.

I am increasingly conscious that I live in a world of contrasts: kindness/cruelty, peace/fear, wealth/poverty, masculinity/femininity, joy/sadness, youth/age.  I explore these concerns through the depiction of the human body.  The images evolve through experiments with mixed-media drawing techniques and printmaking processes.

Art of the past communicates freshly today.  I find inspiration from many eras and diverse forms of art, from the distant past to present day.
