Description: In December 2017, I felt like the world I had created around me was slowly falling apart, changes in the economy were affecting my work. People that I cared for and trusted started to turn on me, they had their reasons and I will always understand why but I had to make some very difficult decisions which affected their livelihoods. Decisions which I had put off for almost a year. That Christmas I did what I had to do, closed my studio and left London to spend the holidays with my in-laws. I ran away for my own well being.
On my return, I had just one member of staff left, she was like an Angel, she listened, she comforted me and she worked really hard with me to ensure we met our deadlines. She was a single mum of two, she really needed the work and God, I really needed her. I was down, beaten and everyday was a struggle but she brought so much joy and laughter to the studio. She was always so beautifully turned out too, her hair and make up - always perfect. She hid all of her worries behind her beautiful face and she inspired me. She inspired me to look my best despite what was going on emotionally. I'd decided that I wanted to shave my hair, I wanted an undercut (you maybe aware that a woman who takes to shaving her hair out of the blue is sometimes seen as an emotional reaction).
This painting Transformation was created around that time. I needed a new me to face the new year.
