#mademyday – one of the many reasons making art matters – lovely words from Jess

At a local exhibition with farOpen a complete stranger walked in and fell in love with my work. We talked for ages and today she sent me an email, a little of which I am sharing it with you, because sometimes it is important to remember that making art carries a responsibility too, to others.  And it is a reminder to us all to be open with each other, we’re all such sensitive souls!

Thank you Jess, you made my day!

“I found you and your work to be really inspiring and exciting. I love your drawings, I love the place that’s inspiring you and I’m really excited about your book which looks fab.
I think your love for what you’re doing is infectious…
Since meeting you something deep inside stirred and I went down to the beach at Beachley under the bridge to see if I could come up with a papier mache response!! It’s looking good so far…a bit to go…but the passion is there!”
