WHY I DRAW
Whimsical, unconventional, innocent – this is how others describe my art. I love using color, shape and textures in unusual ways.
I enjoy when someone looks at a drawing I’ve done for longer than a few seconds – it means I’ve drawn in their attention and intrigue.
I name my drawings after the place I first received the inspiration for them. Seeing the picture takes me back to that time and place, and allows me to relive that certain stage of my life.
I never know what the final picture will be when I first begin drawing. I just don’t think, but instead allow my hands to feel for what to do next. By doing this, I am always impressed with the final product.
I have Tourette’s Syndrome. Drawing is a form of therapy for me. It instantly relaxes the muscles that are otherwise constantly convulsing in my body and refocus that energy into my fingertips and out onto the page.
