After several years of great change I now feel able to capture some of this in new artwork and experiment with different techniques. In 2014 I was inspired by the work of Madge Gill and it was great to have some of my work included at the exhibition of her work at Orleans house gallery and to be included in the exhibition catalogue. I was delighted to have 2 works included in the MIND 2013 calendar- Howling at Hurt Moon and Bollywood Tor. I used to volunteer for MIND in Kingston each year running a series art workshops for people experiencing mental distress. After a time of being too limited with pain and physical difficulties to be creative, it was great to visit Glastonbury Tor in November 2012. Over the course of a weekend I was inspired to begin several new works -some of which are shown here. Some of my works are just too precious to me to part with the originals but I’m happy to create and sell A4 prints of these. To ensure my artwork is accesible I also sell postcards and artcards. My creative journey began suddenly in 2006 ““amongst the chaos and trauma following the tragic sudden death of my eldest son Bryan and my eventual diagnosis of PTSD. My art is an expression of and an outlet for emotions that are beyond words –the ones that no one talks about. My art gives me somewhere to go when I have no-where else to go. Most of my work is based around loss, grief, chaos and the search for healing of the spirit. I am self taught and experimental with my artwork and materials. Following an accident in 2007 I now also have physical disabilities which limit my mobility and restrict use of hands and arms so have had to learn alternate ways to create. I’m often inspired by random words or quotes, which have spiritual meaning, but my main inspiration is Bry, whose love stays with me as mine goes with him.
