Drawing and photography are central to my practice. Both make pressing - if sometimes fictitious - claims to the capture of lost moments.


The Foundling Museum, and sushi

Pencil, pencil crayon, watercolour pencil crayon and collage in Moleskine sketchbook.

The Foundling Museum in London was once the Foundling Hospital, enjoying sponsorship by both Handel and Hogarth. Very moving... with temporary exhibition by Paula Rego, Matt Colishaw and Tracey Emin. I was especially struck by the tiny pink-painted bronze cast of a baby's bootee that Tracey Emin placed on the step to the building, a haunting evocation of the fate of both mothers and foundlings. But I sketched the dark, scary photograph by Matt Colishaw of two babies on a dilapidated sofa, guarded by two feral dogs.
