This is a link to a the youtube video that I made on November 12th 2020 to show some of the images that I have chosen from many drawings of dancers that I have been doing since 2015.
My life has been a juggling act since I was 25 when I started teaching and playing the violin for a living and began to practise drawing, painting and printmaking in my spare time. In 1992 I took a Foundation course at Oxford Brookes University and then a BA at Cheltenham College of Art in 1995. In 2015 I completed an MA in drawing, again at Oxford Brookes University. Since then it's been back to juggling again!
I will draw anything - landscape, still life, figures, but drawing people has always been my favourite. It is generally impossible hard to stare at people and draw them but since 1995 I have been involved with drawing dancers, principally with www.LukeBrownDance.com
. We have started a group for other artists called Bodies in Motion: (@bodiesinmotion) . Since lockdown this group has been working online weekly and has also shared a collaboration with the artists and dancers of Creative Performances
in New York USA.
