A blind drawing process is used in all of my drawings and paintings, the physicality of what I am feeling on my face is drawn/painted directly onto the substrate. This process allows me to concentrate on creating a portrait of my physicality and reality and not my appearance only,  I want to  investigate what self - Portraiture can become. The blind drawing process engages my idea that being humans is not a destination but a journey, one that is constantly unfolding and developing and  becomes ultimately a journey that will always remain unfunished............
