This piece is of a friend from artwanted, Sher Richardson, that passed away about a week or so before i was able to complete the work. She was the first to comment on my work and helped give me the confidence to share my work with others online. And though it’s the support of everyone as a whole that keeps me going at times, it is likely that i would have never continued posting, having then never met any of the other wonderful people that i have thanks to AW and Redbubble, had i not recieved that initial support, thank you so much Sher.
