The Drawing Stone is a small edition book publication made during a break from my day-to-day studio practice during the lockdown across England in spring 2020. 

The work focuses on the materiality of my studio practice, with photographic images exploring close up details of surface textures and artworks in-situ. 

It contains an essay by the artist and writer Bryony Bodimeade on touch, desire, and material intimacy with reference to the use of graphite and brass throughout the body of artwork depicted in the book.
