I’d been painting with oils and acrylics on canvases for a long time now. After the art exhibition “Reflections of Care” in 2016 I was feeling confused by the direction I was going to. I painted Off Kilter to help me get back into the creative space but the stresses life was throwing at me were still interfering with that. I kept coming back to my old portfolio that I had brought back with me from England early on in 2016. The drawings and pastels, some of which are shown here in the Attic.
I didn’t want to delve deeply into my feelings, I didn’t want to meditate. I just wanted to draw what I loved, just like I did in the old days. I looked at Oliver (Ollie) asleep on the sofa. He made me so happy at times of stress. I pulled out my old pencils and charcoals and drew him. It afforded me such a place of peace at a time when I needed it most.
