Drawing

Loosely the definition of Drawing is making a mark on a surface.

Drawing is an important part of our everyday lives; whether it is designing a house, a dress pattern, a mural, cake decoration or scratching a mud map for directions, it all involves drawing.

Most of the drawings on this site are related to exhibitions and hence themes related to that show. I do however draw and sketch all the time; not only for exhibitions or commissions. Ever since I was a kid, sitting in the back of the car capturing landmarks as we flew by, or doodling for hours on the phone pad as I chatted I have always drawn. I always travel with a sketchbook, camera and my diary, visually recording or jotting down things to remember.

Realism and my interest in detail is apparent in most of my work, be it drawing, murals or printmaking.
