With each drawing I can recall where I was and the circumstance in which it was made. I see something joyous or amusing and feel the need to portray it directly onto paper.

My eyes follow the contours of the subject and the space surrounding it and my pencil barely leaves the surface. I am totally absorbed in my work and the world is reduced to what is in front of me and what is being created on my paper.

I stop and look down and can be surprised and excited by what I see. I love the directness and immediate relationship that my pencil has with the material, with the paper or the wax covering the copper plate.

My drawings are a spontaneous process of deliberate simplification and reduction, almost abstraction, in the aim of arriving at a place where the viewer can project their own colour, tones, detail and emotion on to the paper if they so wish.

I instinctively pick out what is important and ignore the rest leaving just a line where the surrounding space that remains is as important as the line itself.

"Less is more in the case of Sally Firino's Line Drawings.."
R Gilland

"The line is playful and gives a heartwarming and child-like optimism to the appreciation of the land; the empty sky blank for us to imagine, ready to receive the ideas and colours projected onto it."
S. Robertson
