Art has always been something that has come naturally to me. I studied it at school and since then I have been doing the odd commissioned portrait (mainly of people and dogs, which is somewhat limiting) It was not until I joined an arts group in Brighton that I found a new way to express myself. Before my breakdown, I believed that everything should be as perfect as possible and this was reflected in my art. Since I have had to seek other ways of seeing the world, this has transformed the way that I connect with art. It is now a constant revelation of my imperfect bits, which I celebrate and explore.
