This was a challenging project for me. When the sketchbook arrived, the materials allowed and the paper provided did not work with what I had planned. It took me a while to figure out how to adjust to what I had to work with, and then to tell the story in a different way.
I always hope that my work will connect with someone in some way and that they will feel a sense of shared experience. Perhaps reminding us that we're not all that different.
This particular sketchbook is intended to help me release some of the pain I have around a relationship that did not work and the sadness around someone presenting themselves one way and then acting another. Most of us have felt heartbreak or loss or perhaps some have felt that feeling of being blindsided by someone who was not who they said they were.
I use colours and shape to express feeling and emotion, and while I do not expect my art to make sense to anyone else, I do hope that it makes someone feel something, and hopefully that something can help them feel better in some way.
