    Sometimes it's hard to find a way through...through the trials, struggles, and dark days that seem to be never ending. We've all faced so much here in Australia over the past few years - caught up in drought, bushfires, pandemics, floods, more pandemics and then more floods. Add in complicated health issues and that light at the end of the tunnel at times seems further away - not closer. However, I can still find light. 


    Finding light amongst the dark trials and sufferings isn't easy, I've had to make conscious choices to look for it. The good news is it's there to be found. Making a way through those dark days gets easier day by day if we keep clinging to the hope - no matter how small - that it exists.  Hope found in the the wonder of nature, the generosity of others, the support in unexpected places, the ear that listens, the arms that embrace us, regardless of our circumstance or background. Pretty soon that light appears much closer than before... and you realise you are indeed 'making a way through'.


    This emotive seascape embodies my thoughts, much like the ocean that continues to rise and fall, the tides shifting, waves changing, it eventually finds the shore. I know too I'll eventually make my way through these dark hard days, and hope you can too.


    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 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. Thank you!
