About The Artwork

This work was done at a drop-in life drawing session in Edinburgh, UK. I decided to focus on the model's face because I found his quiet concentration very peaceful. I began to wonder what he was thinking about. I hope the viewer will feel his calmness. I chose the conte pencils because I thought the gestures contrasted with the stillness of the pose. I chose the black paper to highlight the colours.

Originally from London, I have an MA in Fine Art Contemporary Practice from Falmouth University. I also gained a BA (Hons) in Visual Art from DIT's innovative programme on Sherkin Island, West Cork, Ireland. My work forms part of private collections in the UK, Ireland, Spain and the USA. As part of a scheme to bring art into hospitals, examples of my work are on permanent view in Cork University Hospital and in Bantry Hospital. In addition to my art practice in Ireland, I also worked for six years as co-Director of the West Cork Literary Festival, during which time I helped expand it to become one of Ireland’s leading cultural events. I am a fluent Spanish speaker. Currently researching for a possible PhD. The focus of my research is impermanence of materials in contemporary art, something that is often reflected in my own art practice. Please see my website for further information.
