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

Cool weather, but definitely spring - I've been working like crazy in the garden lately - I mean the really heavy stuff of digging out established shrubs that died over the harsh winter, carrying compost, clearing away so many dead branches, pruning radically. I really don't know very much about gardening, but it's good exercise, and a great activity for seeing outcomes!

Também percebo pouco de jardinagem mas adoro os esgalhos que aí encontro e com os quais gosto de desenhar a tinta da china.

Sim, sei que há gente que faz isso - resulta? Parece que não se pode controlar muito - maybe that's the point. De qualquer forma, tenho aprendido qq coisa (sobre a jardinagem, quero dizer) nos três anos que aqui vivo, nesta casa no meio do campo!
