I would not consider myself an "artist" in the convential sense of the word.
I never had any formal art training and have probably learnt mostly by trial and error.
For me art-making is first and foremost an act of meditation, an activity in which I can lose myself and my wordly concerns and have behind the noisy reality of modern life for a while.
I can empty myself of everyday preoccupations and watch as an image takes shape on my blank sheet of paper. In fact, it never ceases to amaze me how a single, undefined thought in my mind can travel down my arm and hand - straight into my brush or pencil to transform itself into an image before my eyes.
It's just marvellous!
