My personal practice is mainly an exploratory in documenting human behaviour in my immediate surroundings through observational line drawings. I absolutely love to draw people and to explore line and shape in an abstract and figurative way. It is very important to me to have an honesty in my work, in which I try to achieve by drawing from life as much as possible. I have been building up a reportage of drawings as my reference material. I develop a lot of my drawings into screenprints which I like to use as a process to inform the image once again in colour and composition.
I see drawing as a language and use it as a means to study a situation / place / person. I believe the lines and mark making you make in response to real life cannot be replicated through secondary imagery - photographic reference. Although I do get the same satisfaction when drawing from film and moving image so I think the aspect of trying tocapture a moment in time is what feels quite spectacular in this process
