Home of the Little Red Hen
My life size figurative drawings take many hours to create but the initial concept and final work is after a raw, intimate, gut response to a moment in time. I can be completely analytical and realistic but often experiment and explore with the medium. My method involves gestural sketching, rubbing and manipulating charcoal on a white or semitransparent (mylar) surface. It is not until I distance myself from it, that I come to see the it in a separate time and space, and experience the immediacy of the work. This, I feel, moves it beyond the physical realm, and captures the complexity and energy of the human essence; transporting the traditional classical anatomy into contemporary art.
