“Each medium has a particular excitement and the quality of marks and colour palette is of paramount importance. During lockdown I accepted the new challenges of drawing figures via Zoom.

Dancers, acrobats and performers are often the basis of my work as they move before me.

“And it’s a pleasure to share in their creative process.

“There is never more than a brief moment of stillness and I have to grasp what I see, capturing the serendipity of the fleeting tensions as they emerge and disappear.

“I strive to give the appearance that the figure has only just arrived and could get up and move away at any moment, even in a longer pose.

“The local Sussex landscape is also a fascination.
