with a pencil in hand


my work is based around line control and the ability to create movement with simple lines. i portray images that i find on the internet and in magazines that strike out to me — that i feel the need to imitate onto paper in my own way. what my work means to me is everything, it stimulates me, it arouses me, it makes me happy and makes me angry. it’s who i am. these illustrations, i feel, are ideal for the theme because of the intimacy of the line onto paper, and how each image represents an emotion that could be different to anyone that views them.
