“She exists amongst her own tears. Although she had placed her heart in a cage of steel buried deep within her chest, she didn't quite understand how she could still feel the pain.”



The name Lola comes from Spanish origins and translates as sorrows. 



"Being an artist means forever healing your own wounds and at the same time endlessly exposing them." Annette Messager



#3 of 3 in my Trio Of Hearts, influenced by profound sadness and encouraged by conflicting emotions."Hearts Will Never Be Practical Until They Can Be Made Unbreakable." - Wizard of Oz


With her heart full of love, content it be

Though her mind, of many voices, does not agree.

Decisions must be made, for the very very best.

Was I right? Because it doesn't it hurt any less.

    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!
