Artwork for Sara Bamford
Tug of War
Joy De Vivre
Blowing in The Wind
For me being an artist is a journey where I open an idea in my head and walk through a door chasing little glimmers and somehow during the process the journey develops and I find that I am in a place I never envisaged at the start.
Sometimes it can take months and is very slow and then something great can happen in a day.
I get a lot of joy from the results of my labor, and labor it can be, as welding and cutting steel can be quite a hard process with the machinery playing up. However, the joy in the journey is not diminished by this at all. I love what I do.
