My practise revolves around drawing as I believe it is the most immediate and intuitive way to make. The direct quality of putting down a mark allows for am immediate translation of time. Where painting calls for the reloading of the brush, the mixing of the palette, the constant quality of the pen in addition to the repetition allows for me to enter a state of meditation, with the mark acting as the mantra. Drawing for me is a tool both to process, pause and record myself and my thoughts and experiences - the drawings I make are the most accurate way to depict my internal self as they are both the process and the product.
