My love for the Arts has always been predominant in my life. One constant is my love for pencil and paper, frequently taking to drawing the world around me. I like to capture the beauty in sometimes mundane objects and places, always looking for patterns and compositions created by negative space and high contrast light and shadows. My drawings can range from very delicate, light and fragile to very chunky, dark and chaotic. I am drawn to the manual labour aspect of printmaking, carving into the wood and the concentration and patience that is required for this.
