Sketchbooks

An important part of my drawing practice is in keeping a sketchbook.

I draw wherever I can – at home, in fields, forests, by the ocean, in museums, zoos, and libraries.

A sketchbook is an intermediary place; it is neither inside your head, nor is it a completed work of art ready to be offered to the world. It is embryonic; it is a place of development where impressions and ideas can be gathered and visual ideas can grow.

A sketchbooks is like a bundle that you open and add to by drawing something you have seen or imagined - perhaps the tracks of a bird, the pattern on the belly of a fish, the curving arc of a fern. You see, you draw, and close the book, having enriched the treasures gathered bundle of the sketchbook.
