Message from the Artist: I woke in the wee hours of Saturday morning with this image behind my eyes. I knew I needed to create her and struggled hard to go back to sleep and not get up and work, but I was SO tired! Worried I’d forget the idea when I woke, I burned the word HOPE into my mind, in the same way it is on the painting: big and turned sideways, and lying beneath my covers I worked out how I would get the word onto the panel and what the painting would mean to me: the end of divisiveness and “other”ness. We are leaving behind the ashes, the broken parts, the dark. We are facing a new hope. Something solid and smooth, unbroken and glowing. We touch hope, and hope flashes a reflection onto our faces. We/I need this deeply.
So I added the word Deep to the title: Deep Hope.
And when I woke, there she was. Sitting in my mind like a layer of foam on cooking oatmeal (which I made for my son before hitting the studio). It took the WHOLE day before I was able to concept her onto panel, but she waited patiently. And probably grew more layered and special.

The Here & Now Collection. My intention behind this collection is not that we are rising from the ashes, though as humans we must. My intention is more about letting go. About reinventing ourselves and moving onward, not dwelling on past pains and troubles, and leaving the past in ashes. Carrying the fire forward to ignite our next moments.
From this moment, we move forward. There are things we need to forget. There are instances (although sweet) that we cannot cling to.
And that is what this Collection means to me. Truly BEING in one small moment, surrounded by movement and life passing by. Holding on to this fragment of time and touch, knowing that in seconds things will have changed.
