In 2005, I was living in Annandale studying Graphic Design at night at the Enmore Design Centre. I felt I’d been working on computers so much, I needed to get back to what I loved. Which is was simply drawing on paper, I grabbed my sketchbook and pen. I sat across the road from my home and drew my house. It was simple. It was direct. It was fast and it was on the street.
This was a revelation to me. I hadn’t drawn like that for years. Over the next few months I walked around Annandale drawing all the places that I liked. The towers on houses, the chimneys skylines and the stonemasonry built architecture.
This collection became an exhibition at Leichhardt Library “Annandale Sketches”
