I tried to deny who and what I was. I thought I could ignore it and be like everyone else. But the truth is, I’m not like everyone else. Who is? And why would we ever want to be?

This painting is my second in acrylics. When I started it I didn’t know what it would look like in the end – something that doesn’t happen very often.

Somehow I’ve just arrived back on Earth, climbing over the rocks to get back to civilization, because as hard as it is to be there sometimes, that’s where I need to be. For me, it’s a new world.
