Graduating with a first in Fine Art from Sheffield Hallam, I developed the core belief of my practice; that any form of registration, on any kind of surface is drawing. So I explore different modes of drawing through a cross disciplinary approach. Where mark making can be liberated from the page, and opened out to many different interactions, and many different media - as simple as a breath drawn, or complex as a language inscribed.
I start with an inkling, a sense of something emerging which gathers momentum. A line, a paragraph, a chapter. Though never an ending, because my practice is a questioning, fluid and proliferative. Utilising whichever media the idea needs. As a form of drawing from, into and with, it becomes the embodiment of that space of proliferation. And the momentum is the hunger to work, the joy of the medium, and the desire to connect through the provenance of shared experience, that state of coming from and returning to, inherent to an object.
