Where does your passion for drawing come from?
I wasn’t particularly interested in drawing as a child; both my parents are painters, so I suppose I rebelled against visual arts.
But as I got older I couldn’t resist; I took Art A level, and then just found myself applying for an art foundation course.
For me, drawing is the most succinct and direct form of communication. I have always found it much easier to express a thought or idea through a picture, rather than words.
I love playing with colours, and the balance of an image, almost more than the act of drawing itself.
What are or have been your work's reference points?
I just keep my eyes fully open, and try to notice all the little details of life. I also read a lot.
