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


Working with photos

Rotring Artpen and watercolour in Moleskine sketchbook
I decided to take a leaf out of Manuel San-Payo's book and make my notebook meanderings public. I love the way the internet has facilitated artists' seeing each other's work, and non artists peeping into artists' sketchbooks and graphic diaries, much of it work that might not otherwise be viewed. So, this first post was a picture of my work table in the studio. I am making pencil drawings based on family  photo albums and archives, and am especially interested in the way people would pose for that single photograph that marked and tried to capture a significant event.
