Iva Garrie : It has been said that art does not exist to serve the artist but rather, the artist exists to serve art. It is this belief which underpins all of my artistic endeavours. My most recent works are with acrylics and coloured pencil, though I seek to never limit myself to any one artistic medium. Art is both a joy and a struggle. For me creation is a source of joy for it releases the inhibitions which so often constrain the human imagination whilst it reinforces the limitations the physical world places on our imagination. I hope that in some way I am able to close this gap ever so slightly for anyone who enjoys my work.
