Self Portrait

Over the past few months, as I struggled to commit to drawing on a regular basis I have set myself the challenge of drawing self -portraits. It has become habitual as I strive to capture something which feels true to me- how  I feel about myself and see myself. 

I notice through this practice that I have a tendency to be very literal in my approach to subjects which interest me. I am inspired by the drawings of Anne Goodfellow, who's beautiful sensory drawings created in charcoal often blindfolded, explore the figure through the sense of touch and the work of Rebecca Horn which pushes the boundaries of drawing beyond figuration to say far more about the physical experience.
