To Maz and Poppy Jackson drawing comes first. Always carrying a sketch book, they both note down anything that excites or inspires.
A friend once said to Poppy ” I haven’t anything to draw with.”
“no problem,” said Poppy, “Use a fag end, it will do just as well!”
“Never stop drawing” is a message from them both.
” It feeds your head, your heart and builds a library of images to build your practice, whichever form it takes.”
