In my youth, I spent a great deal of time in one hospital or another, it was here that I learnt to amuse myself by making and drawing things. In those days physiotherapy was so different from now, much more brutal to get you back on your feet, but it also had some fun attached to it, like cycling a static bike that cut out jigsaws or making wicker baskets. I would also be given cigar boxes and make them into little guitars, using elastic bands. I could draw until my heart was content. From this experience, I developed a love of creativity.
Once i had finishes my Fine Art degree i found that my work was always charged with an emotional connection. I have since changed to a lighter approach and love all things to do with colour theory. By allowing the work to evolve organically i am less attached to outcome. I use mixed media and often experiment with new methods expression.
