Inspiration and symbolism

This artwork is about the battles that we face on an often daily basis - some are bigger than others - some times it's smooth sailing - the texture represents all these different periods in our lives.

The dot part is from my journey of life series and represents the different paths that we take in life - the twists and turns, the branches ....

Life is harder for some - that's the reality - and we all need to realise that every person we meet in life may be bearing some kind of load that we cannot see ... treat everyone with love, sensitivity and understanding.
