from life: Home & Studio

Drawing directly from life gives an artist a close connection with the subject. When that subject is a person and when the work is made in a single session - when feelings are to the fore and the intellect perhaps takes a back seat, the work can gain a real warmth and intimacy.

These drawings, often made with a lightness of touch, are a celebration of the subject and of fleeting light falling across the subject.
