Your request email has been produced. I have been a practicing artist, with gallery representation for over 10 years. My studio has recently been built in my back garden, so you know where I am spending most of my time! My bodies of work have changed over the years, but one thing has remained the same - my love of integrating old photographs. I have always been interested in old photographic images and the way photographs can give a sense of emotion or recognition. During art school, I began to actively use old photos of my mother in my art. It was less of a nostalgic approach, and more of a curiosity to understand what this private British woman was like as a child and teenager.

Sarah has lived a life of contrast hailing from South Africa, she had constant artistic influence around her. Sarah was constantly travelling in her childhood around South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Central Southern Africa in these places she gained a unique insight into the world and the negative aspects that we in a privileged society often chose to overlook. At 12 Sarah moved to the UK, this move was a huge change in her life and she began to gain the influences of Impressionism that changed drastically the direction her art would take. Sarah had always created art in some form or another but when she was 14 she met John Luce Lockett who became something of a father figure. John also trained her in the art of painting with oils this again added a new perspective to her craft. Martin began to paint more constructed works with more classic elements yet her African influences continued to shine through. Her backgrounds seep into her foreground with aspects of her subjects beginning to merge with the deep tones and often chaotic imagery.
And, as I was writing the reply, above, those thoughts went through my head. With his compartmentalized mind, if I walk away, he will close that door and move on. It may change your relationship to them forever. It's also possible that deep down she's like many of us here, and her shelf will break and she'll want out.
Eventually it turned into a sour argument. She will be surprised that a non-Mormon holds the same values she does and respect you. I cherish my MD husband and Ph. If you are a believer and are willing to go, then well and good. Also, don't forget, some people just arent very good at conveying emotions. I am emotionally mentally and heartily attached to him.
