Art at one stage of my life was the only mechanism for emotive release. My life journey to this point had been at times; too compIex to fathom, too overwhelming to grasp and certainly shaped my character to form the person I am today. What I produce here is a direct reflection of my life, my story, it is my chosen medium for self-expression. There is power in being able to express something emotive through art and let it go, I find it’s this that keeps me engaged in using art to grow and heal…
…“better an empty house, than a bad tenant”…
The artistic community here has come to know me as Unbeknown, my real name is Jakki. Unbeknown says how I feel about myself at this point in my life looking back. It marks a line in the sand between what I have been and what I want to become, 2011 onward. My Journal post below lends greater depth to why I am here at Redbubble.
2011 and 2012 brought being published for my writing and artistic commissions both within commercial premises and for local authority events – both are achievements I am proud and humbled to have, as art was the one thing I turned to when my life journey got tougher, I never planned the passion I have now to create day after day, let alone work for others. I am dearly grateful to those whom understand and buy my work.
I see myself as learning, rather than a perfected technical artist. But what I do has meaning to me, I create with my heart.
