I am in essence a painter, so having the patience to give each image the time and space to evolve is important. But allowing it to materialise naturally this way can, at times, be challenging. It means starting without knowing the actual outcome, but trusting that the right thing will emerge in the right way, through the hand, and hoping through the process I would have learnt my lesson.
Within each process my hand and the pencil are the first medium through which I begin to actualise what comes from within. For me that usually starts with a simple sketch.
