Mary Petherick

I am a Shropshire-London based artist whose work explores the natural form using colour and line. Working with predominantly inks and pastels, I am fascinated in how a simple line can create structure and presence in a drawing. Inspired by my home and garden, I enjoy translating natural shapes into linear works that highlight the beauty and simplicity of their forms. I find my most powerful drawings are the ones where my hand simply floats over the paper, the line drawing itself. Working with ink allows a certain freedom that other mediums, for me, lack, and this is one of the reasons I enjoy working with it.
