This piece visuals and represents the positive and negative energy that is given off by ourselves and those around us. The need to have a barrier (the pink fluffy cloud) to protect ourselves from the transference of the negative energy of others. I first became aware of this concept whilst recovering from a brain injury as part of neuro-rehabilitation with an occupational therapist for the management of chronic fatigue I suffered with. It has stayed with me since this time and been fundamental to my outlook on life and how I have managed to fully recover and overcome cognitive impairments that once impacted my daily life significantly. I reconnected with art after many years away from it. Art in itself, has been a healing tool and process for me that has led me in a new direction in life. I use various media in my work such as drawing inks, spray inks, acrylic inks, acrylic paints, posca pens and permanent markers to create my art work.
