East Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Since taking early retirement in 2008 I have been fully occupied in re-learning and revitalising my drawing skills. Life drawing forms a regular part of my practice and since returning to my home town of Hull I have rediscovered the East Riding and more particularly the River Humber and for about three or four years now I have been exploring ways to express this fascination. Although I would not exclude painting as a possible direction for the future, I continue to be fully engaged with the notion of trying to express this landscape through drawing.
More recently I have moved into a small studio space and this is allowing me to explore long-held ideas around producing larger work. It is the immediacy of drawing and mark-making media that interests me and whatever other mediums I might explore, I always return to drawing.
I have exhibited work in various open exhibitions in the area.
