I draw because there are too many ideas floating in my head; each voice crying out for release.
I draw to free my mind from the clutter of the mundane and the humdrum of daily living that anaesthetises and numbs our inner world, the seat of the soul.
I draw the visible and the invisible in order to make sense of life, of the world, of humanity … and to hold them up as mirrors for our contemplation.
I draw for the same reason I breathe, to remind myself that I’m alive and that the self is important, unique and of immerse value.
