“The internet has had a huge influence on the way I work. Popular culture is absorbed, found and investigated with great speed and this in turn has I think, produced a faster changing concept base.
The iPad has hugely changed my working process, having returned to studies and sketches as when I used sketchbooks (which were gradually phased out by my long-term studio of 18 years). I have returned to the sketchbook, which is now my ipad as a studio on the run, having opportunity to sketch and make studies for paintings, anywhere and anytime. “
