Struggling - an artists reflection on their journey

Updated: May 16

Like everyone during the pandemic, I have had bouts of depression, some worse than others. I've even had bouts of inspiration and excitement. Today, at this moment I am struggling.

I have needed to take a moment to rest and take stock of where I am and where I want to be.

It's like climbing a hill. I want to get to the top to see the great view but I'm exhausted and I need to sit and take a breath. During this time I have been making decisions on how to proceed. This has meant silence on social media, reducing my stock online and finding ways to develop a style that suits me. I am proud of what I have done so far, but I know that I can do so much better.

I gradually started my new chapter by experimenting and playing. Through play, learning and discovering what I really loved, I think I have found my voice. My next step is to go back to the world of social media, work on my own body of work and keep enjoying the process. I know it won't be easy. I will need a lot of will power and a strong desire to get a good view but I know I will get there.

Wish me luck and I wish all of you peace in your endeavours to step through life.

Take care
