The Countdown Begins!
14/09/16

I can't believe it's almost been a year since I've last reached out to you. I hope you are well, living each day with passion and love.

It's been a very busy year with lots of wonderful encountered experiences to share with you. I have so much to say, which I will in due course but for right now, I'm excited to tell you my second ever solo exhibition opens in a couple of weeks at my second home - Albemarle Gallery!

Interlude 3

An Interlude is described as a short moment or an interval of events like musical performances or the acts of a play. In this new series of portrait drawings I explore the short breaks to moments of reflection and solitude, capturing the quiet essence of inner peace and stillness that radiates from the subjects.



Relationship with the sitters

In order to capture the sitters’ Interlude it was of utmost importance that they were in an environment they felt comfortable in. Whether taking photos or making sketches of the models at their favourite park or visiting their own personal space, I found that by being in a comfortable and familiar setting it was easier for the models to channel those feelings of calm, tranquility and stillness that were then translated on paper. The resulting gestures and expressions that one can see in this collection are my interpretation of their inner harmony as well as the beauty of their solitude.

In the process of completing this series I felt a greater degree of inner peace and calm. I truly hope this feeling will be in harmony with you, reminding you to take a moment to breathe and align with your deeper self.
