The end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 marked a significant shift in my studio work. Some soul searching and a decision to focus on making art, not money, allowed me the freedom I needed to explore what I really wanted to express, and return wholeheartedly to my Fine Art background. In came deeper thought and planning, some brutal honesty (!) and a change of mood and palette. My personal circumstances changed completely, and as I painted through my transition, two new series' of works developed as a powerful testament to this stage of my life's journey.
