How do you draw the thing that changed your life forever?
It took me a few years to think about exactly how I was going to do it. I didn’t want to simply draw pictures of my children, I wanted to dig a bit deeper than that. Explore the emotions we felt, the highs and the lows.
There may not be many instantly recognisable images but they do reflect our journey.
I deliberately chose to work in HB pencil as I wanted to use a simple medium to capture something incredibly complex.
Each drawing represents a stage of the process, including the before and after. I hope that these drawings will resonate with anyone who has had a similar experience, and that they also stand on their own as beautiful drawings.
