My sketchbooks and notebooks are central to my creative development. They accompany me everywhere and are both a record, documentation and inspiration for my other work. My notes and watercolour sketches may be captured moments of passing time: moods, conditions of weather, of colour, of atmosphere, the movement of a body, the angle of a head, a stranger on a train, attempts to snatch a moment like catching a bird in flight but letting it go in the same instant.
