As a child I taught myself to draw using both hands diligently copying images from my aunt’s History of Art magazines, a long running series from the 1950s. While watching television with my parents I would use mirrors to reverse the images, turn the magazines upside-down and draw with both hands. I developed the practice during the late 90’s and early 2000s in New York and have now returned to it, attending Open Studio life drawing sessions with George Levantis at Heatherleys Fine Art School. In both my ceramic and drawing practice I seek the minimal touch, I resist erasing and reforming as much as possible, preferring to work with what has emerged. This practice is about fluency and resourcefulness, examining the process of landing ink and clay. I view my practice as both acts of meditation and clairvoyance, intersecting critical discernment and analysis with embodied intuition. These drawings are the first of a series that I will develop over the summer at Heatherleys under the tutelage of George Levantis.
