“With a slight hesitancy in working with colour, I use fine pen on paper with meticulous detail, my aim being to draw the viewer in for a closer look.
I love the simplicity and the restrictiveness of working in black and white, as it requires me to bring something extra out of an image that wouldn’t usually be there had a colour been involved.
I have been drawn into nature as a starting point for my drawings. Having just left London, my home for the past seven years, I am looking forward to seeing how my ever changing surroundings over the next year will influence my work.”
