Drawing is an important part of my work practice.
In the past I used it as a means to create another piece of work, such as a painting or embroidery,
now however I see my drawings as finished pieces in their own right.
Drawing has such an immediacy about it that I love, with just a piece of paper and a pencil I can create other worlds and people.
My work is illustrative in style, and that is very much deliberate. I would love to illustrate my own book some day.
