Taking Risks

In the artist’s own words..... "This exhibition documents the two years I spent living with and supporting a friend of mine through his devastating, destructive drug addiction and the effect that living in his world had on me.

This exhibition shows the detrimental effects that both legal and illegal drugs can have not only on those who take them but also the people who are nearest to them. Producing this work has had a cathartic effect on me as I have had to re-visit difficult memories before I put paint to canvas but it has proven to have had a positive, beneficial effect on the overall healing process."
