Paper

…the vulnerability that’s exposed in an abstract drawing is as readable as one that’s made into a figurative drawing … drawing is the most credible indicator in a very direct way of who people are in relation with what they make.” (Richard Serra)

Paper is a perfect metaphor for both strength and fragility and there is a recurring reference to textiles in my work on paper. The resulting works are often fragile and sensuous, appealing to a sense of touch as much as the visual.
