After my two post-graduate scholarships in Paris and India, responding to new cultures and recording my experiences in them has became an essential stimulus to my creativity. Travel introduces unexpected influences and constraints into ones practice.  My preferred modus operandi is to draw in felt tips and coloured pencils in A5 books, which become part journals and part preparatory designs for future works. The two travel artist residencies in Egypt and Palestine/Israel with the charity Biblelands were particularly significant as have been my family travels in West and East Africa.  In November 2010 I took a party of alumni and students from The Prince‚Äôs Drawing School to record an area of Doha in the process of dismantled and reconstructed.
