Artwork description

“I started to draw trees after reading John Ruskin's Elements of Drawing. Ruskin’s ‘drawing course’ takes the students from the relatively simple task of copying the shape of a flat leaf, through the relationship between proportion and growth, to a point where they draw a real tree. Mine is driven by a sustained period of looking. There is no theory just a protocol. I start with the leaf at the very top of the tree then work my way down leaf by leaf to the trunk, so ‘grown’ in the opposite direction to nature.”
