I spend the majority of my working life sat in front of a computer screen creating digital artwork – so as an antidote to that lifestyle, I decided to rekindle my love of drawing outdoors. I enjoy working quickly in response to what I see before me drawing primarily in charcoal and pastel but also paint using acrylics. I enjoy the squeaky crunching sound of working with charcoal.

The work of Harry Becker is of great inspiration to me – especially his amazing ability to capture the movement of what he saw in a few seemingly simple lines and marks.
