Outside of the commercial aspect of my practice there is a constant need to explore themes & ideas personal to myself. Fed constantly through research it is important to have personal work running alongside commissions. At times I will return to a subject matter or re-translate previous drawings through processes to continue the enquiry. In this way I begin to identify & understanding my working process & the obsessions that drive the work.
