I have been using sketchbooks since 2006.
6. How would you describe your creative process?
My creative process is very spontaneous and I often have several paintings ‘on the go’ at a time. This makes the sketchbook an essential tool. It acts as visual list that I can refer back to. Often keeping me focused on my initial ideas
7. Have your sketchbooks evolved over the years and if so, how?
Yes my sketchbooks have evolved over the years. To start with I treated every page as a potential masterpiece. I am far more relaxed now about what goes into my sketchbooks. Often the notes I make at the side of a sketch are just as important as the sketch itself.
8. What is your favourite medium to work with?
My favourite medium to work with at the moment is biro. I have recently recycled several degree show catalogues by applying white acrylic paint. This blocks out some of the printed image and gives an interesting texture to work on. Using biro has stopped me being distracted by colour and had helped me to consider my use of line.
So thats' all folks for the first of my sketchbook peeks, I'd like to say thank you to Sarah for taking part. If you want to find out a bit more about her or see more of her work, check out her website here and take a look.
