I work with the human figure and organic forms. I explore notions of growth, pattern and control. An important part of my working process is to actively seek detachment, using outside constraints and systems. The drawing process allows me to work in this way exploring methods of observation, dissection, analysis and reconfiguration.

The current process I employ:
Sets of drawings, each set defined by its drawing approach for example - touch (t), print (p)/rubbing (r) and outlined (o). The drawings are scanned and digitally cut into smaller component marks, each mark is given a number and then collated (Catalogue 1). Two numbers/marks are then randomly selected, each assigned a set of random co-ordinates, which when applied dictates their movement and position within a mean canvas size. If they ‘join’ the new mark is numbered and survives to make up a new generation (Catalogue 2), if not they are marked as ‘dead’ and do not survive. The process is repeated, each new generation is a source for the next. All data and drawings are catalogued and numbered.
