I have been drawing for several decades. The medium of pencil in its different forms remains an ongoing challenge in its versatility and its opportunities. For the last few years I have been concentrating on more serious subjects - but have always tended to a somewhat "left field" choice. I suspect that many viewersÂ are puzzled by my subject choices, but they all exhibit charactersitics of a bold central object and considerable detail. Some have described my style as "illustrational". I feel very UNcomfortable with this. This is because I am trying to portray characteristics in the drawing which are not obvious in either casual observation of the original subject, or in photographs.
My aim is to produce somewhat daring, definitely non-standard but always interesting drawings. My purpose in drawing is entirely selfish. I draw becasue it is fulfilling and immensely satisfying - when it works! If others like what I do and buy it - well, that is immensely gratyifying and very good for the ego. But - sales are important, but remain secondary.
I hope you enjoy viewingÂ these pieces as much as I have creating them.
