Studies underpin my key works; they’re not plans but development pieces which show the evolution of ideas and practice. These are often more involved than sketchbook work and tend to be experimental.
The work which comes from what I class as ‘balancing practice’ is made to create and maintain movement in my drawing practice. The labour and time intensive activity involved in creating the key pieces needs to be balanced with fluid mark-making, so on a fairly regular basis I go through exercises to freshen activity.
A good way to get original art on your walls is to buy sketchbook pieces; they’re good talking points especially if you can reflect on the key works which follow; they often have a lot of energy in them and can benefit from cropping and framing, so, once they’ve done the job I need them to do for me then mine are all for sale (untitled and unframed). Please contact me if you require further information on size and medium.
