I draw directly from daily life, sketching people, cleaners, roofers, skips on the street, parks, and cemeteries. I find ordinary people and ordinary stuff profound and poignant when I observe and draw them. My technique is gestural and instinctual. I use materials and processes that relate to the subject and the content. The reportage I do connects the work, the worker and the work that I do.
