I love responding to spaces, landscapes and forms of all kinds. I have always loved sketching, responding immediately to what I see while interpreting colours, shapes and textures in my sketchbooks. Building a library of visuals and feelings. Connection to place through drawing however, is a new reflection. After moving house various times in my life, the last 3 times especially have been most informative. In 2016-17 I intentionally sketched my surroundings and without realising I was trying to connect to my environment through drawing. I had ripped myself away from the security of a beautiful house and a long term relationship. This realisation of how I coped with these events in my life has opened up a new research focus and I hope to do more collaborations and residences in 2018.
