My work predominately focuses on the observation of the human form .I work directly from life rather than photos as I enjoy the intimate encounter and direct immediacy.

I am fascinated by what we reveal and conceal about ourselves and the tension which lies beneath the two .I aim to catch the sitter whilst never betraying their identity.

I do not attempt to hide the drawing process, remnants of discarded lines or residual marks from a previous study may remain.

Uncertainty, Ambiguity, Anonymity .
