Studies in Oil & Pastel
‘Studies are how my raw ideas usually find first expression..Typically small and less highly worked, studies take a fraction of the time of much more considered works of exactly the same size. But because they’re charged with the excitement
of what I’ve seen or imagined, they can have a directness and energy which goes beyond their dimensions.
Along with my sketch notes, they register my ideas and feelings better than any photograph.’
