On drawing

Drawing is a preoccupation with focus, evolving layers and meaning, exposing the world that surrounds us. Through it you have the fantastic ability to record or change and reinvent your vision, to test out ideas and materials. It is a place for ‘wrongness’ to throw up a challenge, a place to strive, to persevere to get it right.
