My drawings and paintings are process based and explore drawing as an exploratory space within my practice. I’m interested in pushing the boundaries of materials and how they react to each other as well as the surface that I work on.

The materials I use and the technique when applying the gestural mark is suggestive of the unconscious approach to drawing, while the deliberate drawing highlights the convergence between these different techniques.

Combined with the automatic drawing, I utilise different modes of making marks. This gives me an opportunity to make “my” mark along with the mark that made itself, operating within a space that is both unpredictable and calculated.
