Gallery When I look at this piece it makes me think about foundations… Everything in life needs a strong foundation on which to build, whether it is a building, a relationship or a belief, without a strong foundation it will eventually crumble and fade. Love at first sight can feel strange, look bizarre and is hard to describe to someone unless you’ve experienced it yourself… This piece is a glimpse of what that feeling could look like for some… Gibson Squared – This is another piece that I created in my husbands music studio. I love laying on his floor listening to him create music and seeing what flows onto the page. I knew I wanted to use a square for this one and went all over the house looking for the right one…. in the end I used the lid from a Gibson tin of guitar strings which is where the name comes from.

Life is all about perspective and how we choose to see what is placed in front of us.

As in life, things aren’t always what they seem and sometimes with just a subtle shift of your eyes you can see things in a whole new way. “Data’s Dreamcatcher” 12″x9″ archival ink on bristol paper drawing.
