'Waiting' is a collection of observed drawings depicting many of the adults who gathered daily in the waiting area of a local hospital over the course of a week.
Drawn live 'on site' with a pocket sketchbook and fountain pen, the collection of sketches captures fleeting and still moments; offering snapshots of this very human experience.
Quiet moments of solitary contemplation... Time spent on the screens of mobile phones and tablets or disappearing into the pages of magazines and newspapers.
Anxious or restless minds captured in stark, candid simplicity.
'Waiting' was created with support from Healing Arts- an organisation that endeavours to bring art to the patients of Carlisle's Cumberland Infirmary.
In the interest of compassion and dignity I avoided drawing any subject who appeared to be in very obvious distress.
