Thanks for looking, if you have any questions regarding this drawing or my work in general please feel free to contact me.

.............................................................................................................................................

I aim to keep my drawings as understated as possible and try to suggest a larger narrative by pairing the primal and elemental qualities of ordinary shapes and forms with my fascination for used paper and the dirt, stains and markings they accumulate over time. I use these as a communicator for much bigger messages based on my musings around my barely tangible and sometimes overwhelming thoughts. For example, the complex and unknowable nature of reality, an intimate moment which exists for just a second and is then forgotten or the impossibility of feeling how someone else feels; the list is endless.

Relatively valueless materials and simple motifs are brought together to explore the abstract traces of life; to project the vulnerability of love, precariousness of life and inevitability of death which embody the complex and uncertain nature of simply being human.
