Sometimes we just begin to move on from one of life’s many challenges before another comes along to throw our lives into chaos and darkness. Do you know that feeling? You question why after why after why…we just start to see light then darkness closes in again.
I take comfort from the coast - and painting it - because while it is often a metaphor for the waves of life, it also brings me hope and healing. It's vast rugged coastlines and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets are a constant reminder of something greater. Sometimes all we can do is pause to reflect, acknowledge, hold on, and wait for the skies to lighten again. Because they always do. And while we are waiting, we are learning, growing, developing strength, patience, and resilience. We learn to persist. We endure.
NB: While every effort is made to capture the true colours and details of my artwork, every screen is different and art viewed online does not do my work justice. Slight differences may be evident between a screen image and the true tone and textures of my work, which is more vivid and beautiful in reality. Scale may also be slightly off due to the insitu art app used, so please ensure you measure your space.
