Inspiration has been Journeying, whether around the world or to my favorite beach, hillside or just a walk to the corner shop.
My surrounding is the initial starting point, but it’s more about my response, thoughts and memories that these places evoke, not the initial representation but my response.
I always travel with sketchbooks, journals and reading books and my iTouch for music and for information. As I travel I have to record these responses in quick gestural marks, whether of colour, shapes, textures or words. So when I return to the studio I have an ‘aide memoire’ to help embellish my ideas.
