Artist Statement

There is no pressure with the sketch. They can be produced freely. Their quantity decreases their preciousness. But at the same time, they are the foot soldier. They are the base. To take one of these and lift it up and give it a stage pays tribute to the moments that are often missed. Like taking a film still and letting it exist on it's own as a beautiful image. A reminder that the world is made up of these. In my paintings i try to express this. I take the sketch for a makeover and pay it tribute.
