Figurative Painter in Modernist Tradition
Drawing is the armature of painting, of any design work. Line creates both gesture and form, positive and negative space and is the foundation of composition. From the beginning of my practice I have made a point of drawing every day; as the musicians say “ya gotta keep yer chops up”. Drawing and sketching from life is an inspiration in itself. The model is often the muse. The challenge for me is to retain the spontaneity of drawing within painting.
