SUE BEARDSLEY:  GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN

ARTIST STATEMENT:

This is a highly personal artist statement, and quite meaningful to me.

There are lots of difficulties in life, who wouldn’t agree? Think of the pandemic we have been living through.

And lots of goodness. To find peace and joy, our task, my task, is to find places, where we can have fun.

So this girl, me, turns to her family, her pets, the outdoors, the sea, nature of all kinds.

AND, making things! In my art life I have found many ways to make myself laugh. And to try to help others enjoy themselves too.   

I hope you are enjoying this show. Truly, don’t we all just want to have fun?
