My relationship with drawing is one of purposeful awareness. Draw-ing helps to be in and with the moment, to slow down my pace and thoughts and reconnect with myself and the present. That is why I draw in situ or in live music performances, to try and capture the authentic rawness of the instant.
For example, both hands are guided by motion if I am in a transport or respond to sounds if I am at a gig. I trust what I feel rather than what I see, and I hope that the drawings reflect the improvised, intuitive and meditative approach of my practice.
