Original mixed media artwork. Acrylic paint, oil pastel, soft pastel, pencil and pen on canvas, 61cm x 91cm. 2023.

"This mixed media artwork is a love letter to my neurodivergence. As a neurodivergent woman, I’ve spent much of my life consciously and unconsciously trying to make myself smaller and more acceptable, according to societal norms. After being late diagnosed with ADHD at age 25, I realised that much of what I had been taught to dislike about and suppress in myself were simply neurodivergent traits - daydreaming, messiness, big feelings, restlessness, gesturing ‘excessively’, interrupting others in conversation, chronic lateness...i wanna make art, i wanna make love, i wanna make NOISE was one step towards reclaiming those parts of myself with love." 

“I’m now at a point in my life where I don’t wish to shrink myself to fit a neurotypical world anymore and instead aim to use my art to carve out a space for myself and others like me. The title of this abstract piece reflects my hope for neurodivergent folk to be accepted as they are - the good, the bad, the beautiful. It’s also a personal mission statement of sorts. I feel I owe it to my Little Self to realise all the wild, exciting dreams she had for her life, before she internalised that those weren’t realistic or possible.”

“I’ve been told on numerous occasions that I should tone down the brightness of my colour palette and specifically use less pink. But… I’m an intuitive artist and I don’t see the point in creating if I’m not doing it in a way that speaks to me. My art is about bringing MY visions to life, not other people’s. i wanna make art, i wanna make love, i wanna make NOISE was created shortly after one of those conversations…” 

"The piece was first exhibited with VVArts Studio in January 2024. Alternative working titles included Outside Voice, Let Her Be and Make A Wish."
