These are drawings of great dancers, mostly ballet.  I have taken for my subject not only the body of the dancer, but also the intelligence that forms it and the spirit that makes art with it.  I have tried to make visible how it feels and what it means to live in these bodies.  These drawings are available in a beautiful hand-bound book, “The Still Point”, which was published in London and won six nominations to the National Trust Show.

My book The Still Point is available for purchase now. Please visit my publications page for details or to listen to my episode of the 'Dance Talk' Podcast.
