About this work

Description

Sketchbooks contains a variety of subjects and styles, ranging from abstract patterns to portraits/nudes to surreal scenes in a cartoon style. Much of it is in pencil or pen, but many of the pattern designs are in colour, and some contain watercolours. The books also contain a large amount of personal writing, poetry and annotations.

Most of the volumes are undated but are presumed to have been created in the 1980s as the few dated ones are from this period and stylistically they appear to be contemporaneous.
