until 11 years ago I was a practicing alcholic for 30years, and
in Oct1992 I was granted a miracle and had my addiction lifted instantly
from me, and from that moment I lost all desire to ever drink AGAIN!!!.
I always loved art but alchohol was always on my mind and I could
never get on paper what was within me. In 1994 I started to seriously
think about art as creative force in my life, after spending 30
years trying to destroy myself. Now drawing visions is my life's
blood and sustenance, it's a gateway to transcend the physical and
manifest a spiritual concept on paper, a physical action to provide
a spiritual reaction. I draw on large sheets of watercolour paper
using lead and carbon pencils and I find the grain and texture of
the paper allows me to reach inside it to reveal the image. Combining
this action with a circular motion of the pencil and the pressure
of my hand is somewhat cathartic in nature in that it produces very
fine detail work, "drawing in the microcosmic to reveal the macrocosmic".
