Self portrait, charcoal on Stonehenge paper, 18”x24”

I practice my art to be able to experience, capture and hold dear what I feel with all my senses and sensations in the moment, as I work; emotions, gestures, mood, tone, colour, aroma… the wind… and on and on. Particularly when working en plein air, experiences are fleeting and transient, which makes expression all the more challenging. It is important to me to practice my art deeply enough to understand the process intuitively and in my way, convey what it means to practice my art.
