Sketchbook 2020 / Seattle Studio

Working in sketchbook is fundamental to my studio practice as an artist. This is where all ideas start and are captured for refinement. Filled with notes, sketches, reportage drawings and observational drawings, these books are a living documentation of my journey artistically. It is a place to experiment and engage in pure process without a concern about how these images will be refined or adapted to more “finished” works.

Below is a selection of images from several of my sketchbooks from 2020. In any given year, I normally produce 2-3 sketchbooks. They are a source of inspiration for me and the best way to keep my daily practice as an artist healthy and strong.

This particular sketchbook was created during the Covid19 Pandemic. Many of the images are related to that global event and the impact that has caused on the global community.
