yellow rattle CU pencil + pastel_edited.

Drawing underpins everything I do.

Through drawing, I find an intimate engagement with the world.

It is my tool of exploration, a means to look closely;

it is my way of relating to life, to the plants and people and things I live amongst.

I'm an artist based in Scotland, living a quiet physical practice:

drawing, listening, walking the ground

How differently we see things according to where we are situated
