Whenever I visit a museum, I always have my sketchbook in hand. Many museums do not allow photography; but
there are times when the pen is more effective than the lens. Translating the image from my eye through my hand makes for a
more intimate experience of the object and helps me to understand it on a deeper level. Because drawing usually takes
considerably more time than I would require with the camera, I choose my subjects carefully. When visiting a new museum (or even
revisiting an old favorite) I will allow my eyes to wander over the cases to see which objects ‘speak’ to me,
then spend time with each of those in turn.
I draw directly in ink. There is no preliminary sketching with pencil, no erasing.
Below are examples of sketches from recent museum excursions. I will continue to add new drawings to this page as I create them.
