I worked alongside my husband, sculptor Bruce Garner, for 29 years, until he got ill in 2009. He was my mentor; I was his muse. A love, perfect with its imperfections. In this exhibition I am unmasking everything – love, fear, anger, inner reflection but no regrets. My art training with Bruce gave me the outlet I needed to keep hold of my sanity. Drawing every day was my most important release and best documentation of our final years together. Every sculpture was created from heart-wrenching agony. Watching my soul-mate deteriorate daily before my eyes could only be expressed through my art. Grieving is nature’s process. This was my way of understanding and finding strength.

My past series have been: Menopause the Natural Way, The Life Of A Uterus, Moods of Cancer, Mr. & Mrs. Globe, Virginia Woolf, and Woman. All have brought me here, to this place and time. It is fitting that my first solo exhibition is one that pays tribute to my husband and teacher. I feel that this is my best body of work. The exhibition has 80 plus works of art, both sculptures and paintings. There will be a celebration of Bruce Garner’s birthday on May 23, and there will be cake.
