I have been sitting here thinking about how on earth to start my first blog in over seven months. Can I explain or put into words, the huge changes that have happened in my life since I last wrote? I can’t. Nothing I would say could do justice, or pay sufficient respect to all those people that kept me going. They were there in the hardest times and are still now encouraging and supporting me. I can’t thank them all enough, they had faith that I could carry on. Even when I thought I didn’t know how to.
Art has been the one thing that has at times taken me to a place of calm and security. I lose hours drawing and I become a happier person as a result. I may not have been writing much but drawing, painting and photography has been a daily routine. I joined Instagram last year and through that community, I made some really good friends, it’s is also amazing the things you learn just by looking at other peoples creativity. I have used it as a sounding board for my stuff too, getting far more positive feedback than I would have thought. Having over 700 regular followers of my work through Instagram, now gives me the objectivity to fill my galleries here with the most popular work. I tried to keep my opinion out of it, as I tend to be a little too critical maybe.
Over the last couple of weeks or so, this is what I have worked on, visually speaking. Moreover I hope you enjoy the art here. I promise to keep in touch for here on in, even if I just let the art tell a story of it’s own.
