Loretta Horn – Recovered Joy

As I slowly started to heal after a painful time of grief and loss, I noticed it was the small everyday things that made me smile again. It wasn’t parties or celebrations, I wasn’t up to those yet; in fact they just made me cry.  Instead it was an appreciation of my domestic life, my pets, plants my handmade and vintage items collected or given to me over my lifetime. My home. These things brought everyday comfort to me and helped me recover from grief.

Thank you to everyone who came to share in the exhibition. Your support is so overwhelming and I am so grateful. A special thank you to those friends and family members who not only continue to support my art but who supported me through the hard, dark times. You brought so much comfort and joy to me too, I am eternally grateful.
