My Bio

Painting and drawing is like breathing for me. I've done it all my life. Recent years have been very hard coping with grief and medical issues affecting my ability to paint and draw. I wast felt like my world was incomplete if I couldn't create. My close friends and relatives had to remind me many times 'just because you can't paint or draw as you did before, doesn't mean your creativity has gone'. I was not in a good place and felt I just couldn't do it any more. I rediscovered my connection with colour, imagery and music, and have started to paint again. I still strive to complete botanical illustrations but the freedom for my emotions in expressing music through images and colour, have given me a looser acrylic painting style that is helping my hand learn to paint again

Its coming up to 10years since I last posted anything on Deviantart! Life has moved in many difficult, frustrating, and sad ways since last I was here - I was just too busy but injuries, illness and grief have disabled me.

Now the juices are flowing again and I am finding my way back. I am now returning to floral watercolour, nature, and botanical art. I also paint with acrylics, painting to express emotion, painting music and lyrics and this has become a real outlet of emotion for me. I'm just so glad to be feeling the creativity again. I have particularly tuned into the imagery I see when I hear music or read lyrics or poems. I 'see' the music and words, and just paint them. I had a hand injury and botanical painting can be a painful struggle and a massive psychological struggle too. I'll

Sorry to all those messages I've not replied to. I'm just a useless human being, that spends too much time cooking cake, creating costumes and painting pictures (oh, and feeding the family!) to get on the computer and keep in touch. But I am still here . . . occasionally!!! :)

Many apologies to all those who have posted comments, faved deviations and made me a friend. I have been hopelessly bad at keeping up to date on my devientart pages! Where do the days go? And how do you all manage so well, I just can't keep up with life and deviance! Thank you all for your comments, faves and friendships, and I will continue to try and keep in touch in my usual hit-and-miss fashion! GO CHECK OUT MY DAUGHTER - she's discovered she can still paint - when she gets around to picking up a paintbrush again! http://WiltingFlower124.deviantart.com/art/Cherry-Blossoms-130061669
