About

Creativity is separate from the real world for me. It’s a magical world in which I like to immerse myself. When I'm involved in it, I get the wonderful sensation that there are no limits, that anything is possible. My goal is to feel I am a part of what I create, to fall in love with both the process and the finished piece. My artwork is a part of me in which I can take refuge and feel protected, it allows me to retreat into a world that is kind and reassuring.

My inspiration is the human face and form. I try to draw other objects from time to time but find I get bored, however the human face, eyes, hair, just hold my attention. To begin, I mock up my idea in a photo program and play with light and contrast in grayscale to see if it would work as a monochromic piece, then I start the drawing process, using the photo as my reference.

I have tried a lot of different mediums but it always seems to come back to pencil. I love the simplicity of drawing with pencil on paper and how much control it gives me over the finished artwork. It's amazing how something so simple can produce a really strong image. During the drawing phase I use a full range of pencils from 2H to 6B. I'll often use black watercolour, acrylic or charcoal for the really dark shadows and back biro or pigment liner for linear work.

If you have a particular idea or request, please feel free to reach out to me. I love a challenge, but I will also be honest with you if I feel its not suitable to my style or my abilities.

As an introvert, this is an area I have yet to conquer.
