Artist's Statement:

The drawings that I exhibit at the Pastel Society are mainly portraits and nudes in either charcoal or chalk pastels. They are the result of intense observation with attention to detail and meticulous mark making.
I endeavour to show a sense of humanity to my portraits and nudes whether it is a sense of peace and calm or an underlying tension; and I hope this is portrayed in the work. I like the impact of charcoal on white paper which has a timeless quality. However, when I do use colour I enjoy showing the subtleties of skin colouring with a fairly limited palette.

Method of Working:

I always work from the model when drawing and enjoy the linear qualities of charcoal, particularly charcoal pencil which is good for detail,
I also like the texture of Fabriano paper which helps to emphasise my line. When I work in pastel it is with a limited palette, making use of the tone of the paper.
