I never thought of myself as being artistic, never mind being an artist of any description until three years ago when I was challenged by what was to become life changing mental health difficulties.
As a result I was encouraged to paint to help myself in my recovery.
Wow! This new ‘thing’ got me, sang to me and has absorbed me ever since. I love using colour and texture in my paintings to get my meaning across which I have been told is my strength. I love oil painting but often use acrylic because it’s more versatile. I like to work large when I can.
I am currently trying to improve my technical skills so I can take my art to further levels.
I try to believe this new found talent is mine …. for me art signifies Hope.
