I picked up some pencils and a visual diary 18 months ago and I am now studying creativity by distance learning at The Learning Connexion.
I am inspired by feelings, textures and things that are unpredictable.
What lies in the shadows of us and how do the shadows we hide from come into our life anyway.
I started this Shadows Project through a photograph that I took of our shadows. I used many different media throughout the project and it was the fact that I needed the shadows to stand out and be on top that I ended up using polyfilla over indian ink and black crayon on the top.
The impact of Covid-19 made me think more deeply about my art and I applied for a scholarship through The Learning Connexion. To my absolute surprise, I received a scholarship and this has taken me, my techniques, my preferences and my abilities into places I never thought possible.
