Drawings

Drawing with a pencil is about as basic and you can get. From rough sketchbook ideas to the precise rendering of form and light, I love the tactile feel of a sharp pencil skating on paper. For years, most of my “fine art” has been created using an HB graphite pencil on Stonehenge white paper.

My drawings are of pretty common things: stones, found objects, growing plants and string … But the real subject is always a secon concept radiating from behind the object I am drawing.

Most of this artwork is framed and available for sale and there is more in my studio. Contact me for price, viewing and delivery details (sizes measure artwork – frame size may be larger).

When I want color these days, I use colored pencils. I am interested in letting the grain of wood behind my drawings lead my compositions.

Stones and more stones… I have had a decades-long love affair with drawing how light defines their forms and textures and how they rest against each other.
