Venetia NorrisArtist, Teacher
I find a preliminary drawing more exciting than a finished painting. It harnesses a raw energy, liveliness and expression that only a line can convey. I am fascinated by the process of making a mark, the noise of graphite across a piece of paper, building up layers of considered lines, the connection between myself and the subject. I view it as a sculptural process on paper.
