The Muse

So much has been written to both celebrate and dissect the role of the muse in the creative process. Shakespeare’s plea, “O! for a muse of fire, that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention”, has been whispered by countless creatives, and occasionally answered, to produce remarkable work.

My own experience was best described by author Rob Brezny, “All of us need to be in touch with a mysterious, tantalising source of inspiration that teases our sense of wonder and goads us on to life’s next adventure”, and was named Trudy-Jane (TJ), a forty-something mother of two with a hunger to create a body of work that was both intensely imaginative and highly varied.

Our first efforts, in the latter half of 2014 were faltering – my skills were barely adequate whilst her modelling was inexperienced, but we persevered for the sheer fun of it.

Then, with the death of my father in 2015 I found myself thinking, not for the first time, about quitting. But this unique collaboration kept me going and now, four years later, we boast an astonishing body of work, a small sample of which you will find below.
