ARTIST STATEMENT

I work in all mediums, digital, sculpture, paints, woodwork and a trusty pencil and paper. Creating my illustrative works often comes from ideas of narrative and people, there is so much to see and draw ( my sketch books rarely have a day off) Depending on the piece of work, at hand I develop it through trials of digital texture or acrylics but everything i make starts out life as sketch.
