As an artist I have always felt it difficult to explain how and why I create my work. Since I studied
|Girl Watching Ducks|
It was thinking about all of this (as well as probably drinking a scotch) that led me to make my own famous quote;
"Artists are tormented because they have a vision no one else can see".
I thought that quote was very appropriate (for myself anyway, as I'm sure other artists are tormented because they hear voices or whatever) as even though people look at my work and think it's nice, they don't see it in the terms I do, because if they did they would say "WOW!"
Anyway, I thought The Tormented Artist would make a great name for a blog, and lo and behold the URL was available, which I took as a sign from God, so here we are!
