Whilst my subject interests are eclectic, I feel drawing the human form is one of the most challenging and absorbing. It is also one of the most rewarding, since it is, above all, a collaborative process underpinned by a strong creative partnership between artist and model.
Working mainly in charcoal and pastel, my preferred style reflects a keenness for chiaroscuro, a technique which relies upon the effective use of strong contrasts to achieve depth and volume.
Art, I believe, is a continuous process of learning and development. We can never hope to reach perfection but seek constantly to improve.
I faut avoir une haute idée, non pas de ce qu'on fait, mais de ce qu'on pourra faire un jour; sans quoi ce n'est pas la peine de travailler.
We must have a high opinion, not of what we do, but of what we can do one day; without which it is not worth working.
Edgar Degas quoted in: Degas Danse Dessin by Paul Valéry 1936
