It’s a curious thing… the need to put pencil to paper, the need to create something that wasn’t there before. Fulfilled and unfulfilled, somehow that urge has stayed with me. It’s a gift to now have time to play with the possibilities, sometimes the overwhelming possibilities of doing just that. Ever since my father showed me how to add shadows to a black outline of a deer, on a page in my colouring book, I’ve been drawn to the magic of creating depth on a two dimensional surface. It did seem like magic then, and it still does, so I continue.
