‘I think of my physical self as the facilitator for my creative self. When my creative self puts my physical self in a new environment, new responses happen. The excitement, for me, is the discovery of how that response may manifest.
While travelling I was awakened by new environments. My appreciation for simple art elements such as line, shape, and colour was refreshed. My drawings were spontaneous, an innate response to my surroundings. Subconsciously absorbing the heat and temperature of colour .Exhilarated by a new colour palette, through cut work
and collage I married the paper and drawing.’
