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
