I am a strong believer in the value of drawing as part of the creative process. I love drawing and nature, the detail, the elements that are missed by a fleeting glance, the beauty of our environment. I invite the viewer to look deeper, draw them in and offer another level of engagement.
I usually work in MetalPoint (24ct gold, pure silver wire), Coloured pencil and/or Graphite.
These mediums allow for the precision, control of detail and depth of the work I enjoy.
MetalPoint is a technique that has been used since the time of the old masters and there are very few artists using this medium now. MetalPoint is all consuming, knowing one wrong mark can ruin hours of work My other medium of choice is coloured pencil, Coloured pencil is finally coming into its own as a recognised fine art medium both these mediums suit my style for detail.
The Skeleton is a combination of Metalpoint (24ct gold, pure silver wire), and coloured pencil to give the softness and delicacy that is needed to portray such a fragile object.
