I have been interested in painting and drawing since I was a child. This preoccupation has been my sanctuary. Somewhere where I can retreat and be in the moment with no other concerns other than to draw and paint (or even play guitar). Giving me a way of dealing with what life throws at you by stepping back and focusing on the act of creating. It recharges my batteries and puts my world in to context, contributing to my mental health and wellbeing. Surely everyone should have access to able to create.
