Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings together man and the world. It lives through magic.Keith Haring.

Reconnecting with drawing skills...besides being a cathartic 'magical' experience is also the foundation and channel through which to explore and express facets of ones humanity through creativity: A journey of the  inner life connecting with the outer world...stimulated through a combination of contemplation and observation resulting through the physical act.

This deliberate act of drawing creates space through which to illuminate many facets of the material world; the interactions of shape, form, light, shadow, texture and patterns all come into play.

In a recent project, I focused on exploring the journeys we take on public transport. Initialy study sketches whilst travelling by train, I created a series of  larger scale drawings titled, 'Travellers' through which I went on to produce lino cut images, titled ,'Worlds Apart' exploring the internal and external worlds in which we experience, exist and journey.
