For me, drawing is multifaceted. One aspect of its nature is its capacity in the work of making - complex, challenging, with interesting problems to solve. There is a compelling relationship between research and ideas and the sensory, tactile action of drawing, to uncover new and unexpected responses and conversations. It has been such a joy to visit and experience new places this month, for inspiration and to gather material, and I'm looking forward to discover what this will bring!
Another aspect is drawing's fundamental, universal and accessible nature to make connections with ourselves and others. Through the handling of material, drawing opens up multiple positive responses, from the energy and ideas gained by allowing our minds to switch off, doing something creative, to bringing a sense of calm that is essential for wellbeing. I'm passionate about the benefits of drawing and I'm keen to share these positive aspects through DRAWING SESSIONS.
