Additional Information

As women, and a mother, my role is defined by resilience. Life, as symbolised by the tablecloth in my painting, is a journey of up’s and downs. As a mother of four, I know only two well, the struggle of maintaining my personal identity, whilst giving my whole heart and energy to the needs and wants of others. The resilience to give them my ‘best self’ in order to see them grow into theirs. I maintain that a mother’s role is one to be cherished, and to know the love of your children is the greatest gift, but I am fully aware that this seemingly glamourous, naturally occurring female birthright is fraught with agony and turbulence. Too often through social media, we see the orchestrated images of the ‘perfect world’ a carefully curated image of how we wish others to see us, but it is not always this sweet in reality. Having said this, a true life, filled with grubby children, and a crumpled tablecloth, with simple sweet tea to share is something of a mundane luxury! Holding that moment in a painting, of the second before my children devour their afternoon tea, whilst regaling me of tales of their day, is a moment I wish could last forever. Their in lies the secret to resilience; to savour the sweetest moments every day.
