My work 

 

As a visually impaired artist, I work with essential lines and marks to describe my subjects, weather this is drawn on paper or outlined through drapes of fabrics.

I use a limited selection of lines and marks that convey contours, shadows and the little extracted detail and definition I am able to see. 

My intention is to be able to engage and relate to others through artistic mediums and encourage them to interact with their emotions and senses.

The primacy of drawing in my artistic practice comes from its speed and organic force, coupled with the ability to back light through a support, which aids my Nystagmus one of the three eye conditions I suffer from. 

My work is spontaneous and light with a fluidity that suits the mediums, I have a limited amount of time when drawing before my eyes tire. I use this to my strength, to impart only critical marks and strokes.

My work comprises of portraits, female nudes and natural forms, which I draw with water-soluble pencils, ink and paints, these are my preferred mediums.
