ABSTRACT  MIXED MEDIA ARTWORK

I can't really escape the fact that I have Multiple Sclerosis so I have decided to roll with it for better and worse and see where it takes me and my work. 
I face limitations everyday of a physical nature but the one resounding motivation I have more than any other to get out of bed in the morning is making artwork, I need it more now than ever, I had got to a dark scary place and starting to paint again has switched the lights back on.
The work is about how I can express what it is to live with this disease; the unseen, the hidden, the veiled and the bewildering complexity of things that prevent or provoke forward motion. It is also of course about the making of art despite the above. Abstract gestural expression is what works for me these days  - I'm not in interested in a thing or a place but in putting down energy and moving eyes about across a surface.
