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.

My art builds a body of strength and character, an empowering force, not only for myself but for each and every woman. I have learnt and grown so much over my 40+ years; The good, the bad, the ridiculous... It's all relevant. I'd really love to share some of that with you!
