I consider my work to be primarily drawing, not as preparation for painting or sculpture but as an end in itself. Even when working in 3 dimensions, or when using photographic elements, the work is drawing. By altering photographs with scalpel, pencil, etc. they become separate entities, dreamlike spaces where solidity and transparency, or reality and fantasy, merge. Sometimes the photographs are ‘found’ material, from advertisements or bought in charity shops, others I take myself.
