Art will set you free!

A chance encounter with an artist’s work I had never heard of and a challenge involving one I had, has taken me on a journey that I had forgotten can be so enjoyable while challenging that part of us that responds to the visual image.

What is apparant is how everything is connected and, since 2013, I’ve travelled the UK and Europe visiting museums and art galleries to explore one connection after another, following recommendations and taking chances on seeing something I may not like.

Last year, I wanted to formalise my knowledge and undertook a diploma in art appreciation. This week I completed the course and am pleased to say I am a graduate of The Art Institute!
