My inspiration is the most fundamental element in art – line. Quite simply I have always been drawn [pun intended] to the varying qualities of line.I love the way it changes when it crosses paths with another line,when it forms an outline or the soft line of a shadow. Even the solid ares of my work consists of many varying lines forming a solid mass in which there can be found tiny lines of shadows a result of the di erent depths of the graphite.I work primarily in graphite and oil whic I nd it gives such unenexspected dimensions to my work.Line is so simple and complex and all are exciting to me. It is the lifeline of my work.
