Jessica - The First

I do believe this artwork was the very first I had ever given an actual female name. June 2007. 13 years ago. Wow.

I couldn't possible tell you why I named her Jessica. These were just the very beginnings of something I didn't even quite know was to be a "thing" yet. At this time I didn't keep much of a record, written or otherwise. I still wasn't quite sure what I was doing, why I was doing it or where it was leading.

I do know, however that I was looking to create something surreal and somewhat sensual.

Looking back right now though, I can see my struggle. Those first 5-6 years after my separation from my marriage were incredibly volatile and the hardest of all my life. I'm not exactly sure why but I can see that here.

What do you see?

Be bold, be sexy, be fierce and live and learn from the past.

I have learnt and grown so much over my 45+ years; The good, the bad, the ridiculous... It's all relevant, because at one point or another, in some way or another, there are always roads taken, accomplishments, fears and obstacles along the way, which most of us have (or will have) in common. 

I'd really love to share my journey with you, and through my artwork, embolden a body of strength and character, an invigorating empowering force, within each and every one of you as you move forward. Join forces with me!
