A sketchbook is a diary, a journal ; a narrative of introspections and notations of a state of mind. I use my sketchbook to take quick studies of the female figure, what I feel as if my body appears, or how my emotions make my body feel; in order to translate emotions of dejection and abjection into my work. I use a similar style and palette in sketchbook workings, as in my ceramics - sustaining a visual immutability across my practice. My sketchbook workings are integral to my practice; allowing one to view the development of ideas and thoughts, and continuously abstracting the female nude in accordance to my feeling.
