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


Quickly in the garden

I've had a completely obsessive time in the garden: the work of gardening is at least 70 per cent about tidying up and clearing away... the growth rewards the slog. The moralisation of work? You bet!  As this sketchbook nears completion, it gets fatter with the buckling of pages and the pages spring open, making it much harder to scan - hence the centre of these spreads are all blurred.
