Maxi Jazz Portrait.
This was one of six portraits I exhibited at Warrington Museum and Art Gallery. It was about musicians that I admire. Below is the statement I included with the work.
As an artist, music accompanies my practice, with studio days spent listening to the radio and wonderful workshop days complimented by the sounds of my Ipod.
I think that musicians and artists have quite similar life styles whether they are working very hard in several part-time jobs while also trying to make it big with their own work or they are the successful few.
I am passionate about music and I have huge admiration for musicians. Sometimes I find myself being envious of musicians, song writers and singers. They are able to express themselves so openly, seemingly without the anxiety that they might be ridiculed, it may be that musicians have the same feelings towards artists. The grass is always greener! Maybe I should put down my roller and dust off my guitar…
