At the beginning of 2014 I had a breakdown, following the breakup of a long term relationship. I was devastated and particularly with how this affected by art practice. In short, I could not make any art. When I eventually picked up a paintbrush again, I wanted to do something completely different. I felt like the old person I was was gone and I felt so far removed from my old style, I could not go back to it. Hence my adventure into abstract art.
Lately, I feel like my old style is calling me back again. My interest in abstract art is fading. Maybe this is healing. I am listening.
Here are some of my artworks pre-2014 in what I call my old style.
