In this age of anxiety I offer a reprieve to the viewer. My daughter is in the pool we are on holidays. In another second she has turned to move and the moment is lost to a memory. The figure is painted in detail in contrast to the looser treatment of the water. My partner died 5 yrs ago by his own hand. Since then I have had to create a new life for myself and my children.
In the process I have questioned my previous art practice and I have delved into my spirituality and focused on finding my own voice. The use of blue in these paintings indicates my connection to my own true voice and expression.
