My desire is to create fresh and energetic drawings of the natural world through direct and immediate mark making. Both sensitive and visceral, I want my drawings to capture fleeting moments and experiences in nature. I mostly work outside, focussing on the things that capture my attention within the landscape and the wildlife that inhabits it. When I’m outdoors I experience a sense of freedom from the constraints of daily life. I feel refreshed and energised by what's around me and I am totally absorbed in the moment, which is why I love it so much.
