I am an avid painter whose weapon of choice is acrylic paint. Sadly, like thousands of others and perhaps even you, I have suffered with a lot of loss in my life. Grief has joined me on my journey through life since being only a few months old and persists on taking everyone from me. To escape from the pain and brutal reality of life, I turn to my artwork to reminisce and celebrate the memories of those I have lost. Doing this I find it helps me to understand what is going on in my life and remember the good memories spent together. During my journey with grief, I have found myself to often get caught up and stuck in the past, therefore by being retrospective it solidifies to me that time has moved forward and I have to keep up before I get stuck. Art has been a way for me to find my voice and express my headspace. It has been a great way to start healing myself and coming to terms with situations life puts me through, as well as allowing others to understand their own grief and loss.
