Drawing slows down and extends looking and in the process of translating marks onto the page, the brain is able to discern additional information not otherwise seen in a single glance.
I advocate for drawing as a research method in the study of dress artifacts and artworks. To learn about the slow approach to seeing (chapter 2 in my latest book Reading Fashion in Art), this video provides a brief overview.
My work has been featured in the book Drawing Investigations: Graphic Relationships with Science, Culture and the Environment by Sarah Casey and Gerry Davies (Bloomsbury Visual Arts 2020).
I have conducted Drawing with the Dress Detective workshops for
London College of Fashion
Textile Studio Toronto
Textile Museum of Canada
University of Brighton
I also created a colouring book for Ingenium Museum in Ottawa, Canada. inspired by that museum's trade literature collection. This colouring book is available for download as a pdf below or at the museum link HERE
