I Wanted It To Be Perfect

Chrissie Richards

“As a Mother, we want our children’s lives to be perfect. As they grow we learn that we cannot always make that happen, that can be devastating to us and them.”

"I am an artist living in Brightlingsea on the North Essex coast. I make quirky figurative paintings. Mental health, both good and bad is central to my work. I have had person experience of depression and anxiety and also cared for family members who have been affected. I believe deeply in the power of creativity to sooth my soul and connect my busy mind to the universe."
