Bruce is an inveterate doodler.
Years of archiving post it notes of doodles from work meetings, he decided to elaborate on these patterns and produce full drawings. The results is a collection of drawings called The Meeting Minutes.
Driven by the act of repetition and consistency some drawings take 50+ hours and require controlled breathing and a calm mind.
Bruce describes the benefits for him as two fold, the collecting and organizing of thoughts and how the outcome is a result of a meditative repetitive process. The relationship between the brain and hand has remained intact, yet producing different results.
Bruce believes shared experiences are one of the most effective forms of art and interpretation of art. "That is the connection point for viewers: since everyone doodles, everyone has a different interpretation of what they experience in my work."
No two people have the same reaction, the same impression(s) or perspective.
Bruce is married to a supportive non-doodler and is the father of two inspiring doodlers. Located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, he currently works as an independent IT consultant.
