Art has given my life new meaning. Since suffering the loss of my husband, I turned to art for comfort and it has since been an anchor for my health and wellbeing. Initially, art has been a challenge; given the numerous forms available and not to mention the patience needed to create something that not only satisfies the eye but also the soul. Art has taught me to be mindful, supportive and resilient – not only to other’s but to myself.
