‘My practice revolves around drawing. Charcoal graphite and acrylic are my medium and I work on paper or board. I have been influenced by many artists over the years but consistently by Kathe Kolwitz and Rodin.’

The images here are of the Heads from a large body of work which relate to the Human Condition.
