What would you do if your fairy godmother appeared and said: "Ok stop what you're doing, you don't have to work anymore. You can do whatever you want for the rest of your life!"

That's what happened to me in June 2014, and I quickly decided to become what I had always wanted to be, an artist. So I stopped being a carpenter, I turned my workshop into a studio and started making paintings and sculptures and I have absolutely loved it.
The only problem is this- my fairy godmother was a terminal cancer diagnosis. The strangest part is that on a good day, I'm almost grateful. It's a weird feeling. This exhibition is what I've come up with so far...
