Anonymous asked: I really love your work. I often wonder what you use as references for your figures? Do you work from life, or photographs?
Thank you so much :) Most of the time I work from photographs that I have created myself or with a photographer and professional model or people I know, I work from photographs, as the poses are hard to maintain for long periods of time. On the odd occasion I’ve come across a photograph/image and get inspired by the pose etc so I then contact the person who took the photograph to ask permission to use their image as reference for my work

I wanted to say ‘Thank You’ to my Tumblr friends/fans/followers for the encouraging messages and comments :) - You’re a lovely bunch and I’m lucky to have such compassionate and sympathetic followers on Tumblr
