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


Shoes around the house

Ink pen and watercolours in Windsor and Newton A5 sketchbook.

Ink pen, watercolours and Tria manga brush markers in big sketchbook.

I've always liked drawing shoes - I love their fabricated thingness, the intricate or chunky nature of them, and also the way they so readily stand in for, and suggest, a wearer, a person. Like chairs, shoes make good portrait subjects! In the second drawing, the left page is actually the verso side of the right page: I like the way manga pens and markers show through on the other side. In photoshopping the two pages together, I've inadvertently made it look as though the one on the left has blotted the excess ink of the one on the right.
