It was about 7 years ago and I was dabbling back into producing art. I did only a few drawings at the time. Life got busy, and priorities were elsewhere. I never thought that creating art for me would be so important, and now that I have totally immersed myself in producing art, I realise how much it has helped me to manage my emotions, anxiety and how much I actually missed it.
Something sprung to mind and I started to draw what I was missing. It was the loss of my mum not there and the wish that she was, that started these simple yet so meaningful drawings.
The first one represented me and my mum sitting, looking out to the distance, together, quiet, happy, peaceful. Just letting time pass by, being in the moment. That precious moment when life stops, nothing else matters but that moment. It was so poignant to me and I felt a great sense of connection through these drawings. It was my therapy and still is.
I never thought that I would revisit this simple style of drawing, and start to produce others and evolve my style further. The connection and subtle story between the figures, the sense of something personal and private shared with only them. Quite powerful, yet quiet, sensitive and thoughtful.
We all need connection with others. As humans we need this closeness to survive and feel a sense of belonging. The emotional pull we feel towards our loved ones, friends, and those we share our lives with is so important. I love how these drawings encapsulate that. May we all find emotion drawings, and artwork like this, soothe our souls, bring us peace, quiet contemplation and hope for better days.
