LOS ANGELES: Filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson endured a rough ride creating "Fifty Shades of Grey", which knocked her and left her feeling she had to take a breather and refocus.

"It's no secret. (‘Fifty Shades') was a rough ride so, I needed to take a breather and refocus because it knocked me off a bit," said Taylor-Johnson, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 50-year-old filmmaker worked on the first instalment on the erotic franchise, but decided not to return to direct "Fifty Shades Darker".

And to refocus herself, she has returned to the art studio and has started creating new masterpieces, before she signed up to create the new Netflix series "Gypsy".

Johnson said: "I've been working in the studio making new artwork ... a whole new body of work, photography, collage. I have been trying to work on a new self-portrait series they've always been about placing myself in a certain place in my life or my environment. And then directing ‘Gypsy'."

However, Johnson, who is married to actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, has admitted she has had her fair share of knocks, but each occasion has helped her to learn from her mistakes.
