Detail of ‘Raining on the Inside’ 50x50cm wire , paper, pencil crayon.
Unlike the landscape pieces,the wire figures represent a more emotional and psychological reality. These refer to a difficult time in my life , when anxiety killed my creativity and became a circle of self-doubt. ‘Raining on the inside’ represents the struggle to appear normal and upbeat to others ,when you feel anything but. ‘Whole Again’ is about growing in strength and confidence, from a ‘shell ‘of yourself to feeling comfortable in your own skin again.
