I’ve literally struggled for YEARS to find a consistent theme to keep in my work. I know I like bright colours and that my work leans towards contemporary impressionism, but to be honest that is about it. The rest of the time I was like a child in a sweet shop running around with glee and distraction by all the bloody beautiful things to paint.
I’m pretty sure I’m not the only artist to wrestle with this struggle. Don’t get me wrong, I still sell my work, take commissions, and have solo exhibitions and I’m very happy with the journey I’m on. But I’m even happier to say I think that finally I’m not just skipping along a path I want to follow anymore, but running with purpose.
I think this piece is a turning point for me, I’ve never enjoyed painting a piece more and felt so much enthusiasm to create more.
I’ve named it Briony, after my sister a she continues to inspire me with her strength and resilience of character after a tough year of dealing with a disorder that changed the way she views the world 💙
I hope you like this new direction.
