Drawings & Ideas

I remember as a young child the wonderful smell when I opened my first watercolour box or took the tops off poster paints and how beautiful a tin of unused coloured pencils looked. Having looked at so many art and design books over the years, it’s easy to forget what I’ve seen, so whenever possible I try in my sketchbooks to document what’s interested me -the marks, textures, patterns and colours. I have always thought how interesting the different qualities of a pencil line were. Sketching out ideas, drawing for reference or just doodling has always found its way into my art.
