When I see an exhibition of modern art, I get a great buzz. I imagine I could do something like that. It’s a great feeling to exhibit – very exciting. I sometimes think I am more of a colourist than anything else. I play with the colours. Although, I can work just with black also. My favourite medium is acrylic.
Art helps me express myself but also it helps me discover things about myself that I didn’t know and what I wanted to express. With my art I find things that other people say very interesting. When others see my art I am happy for their insights.
My art does make me feel very good about myself, very excited, happy and satisfied.
When I started going to art galleries, Monet was my favourite, with the lillies and I love the impressionists.
I would love to think my art could help change attitudes towards mental health or disability but its more for pleasure or interest I think. I want to go forward and always continue making art.
