It's been an interesting few years and I won't say it hasnt been difficult. The brush with death having had breast cancer twice has been both frightening as well as life changing. I've learnt a lot about myself and had taken this experience and made something good from it.
The last lot of artwork was very dark and it did reflect my state of mind and although things are on the up, I still find the dark side of art nspires me and I enjoy digging deeper into that realm. It doesnt mean I'm in a dark place myself however so dont worry about that! Often artists explore the dark side, its a good place to grow from.
Just last week I was asked to be part of a local show at a new gallery space here in Hamilton and I jumped at the chance. Its been a pretty rough time in recent years, galleries have been closing and there hasnt been many places for artists to exhibit. Those who know me, know I'm passionate about supporting everything in art and anyone who gives this a go so I'm naturally backing this new space. So this is the part where I announce I will be painting once again and exhibiting very soon. I have already created half a show, I was just waiting for the right place to come along that fitted with what my show is all about and my concepts and ideals for life in general.
