I work from life, for me painting and drawing are a dance, my hand and body responding to the object, landscape or person. My response is very visceral, and is very much about a sense of touch. I work fast, to block the controlled analytical response,to access my subconscious emotional response. I search for a simplicity, often removing or rubbing out as much as adding. Speed also gives rise to the unexpected, the suprising which keeps the work alive. I usually work standing, and like to work on a large scale, drawing is a very physical activity using the whole arm. I find working from life enables me to work more freely and abstractly. Oils are my favourite medium because of their sensuousness, and I love charcoal for it’s drama and softness.
