Darkmess. 2015 Pencil and watercolour. “The deepest work is usually the darkest. A brave woman, a wisening woman, will develop the poorest psychic land, for if she builds only on the best land of her psyche, she will have for a view the least of what she is. So do not be afraid to investigate the worst. It only guarantees increase of soul power.” Woman Who Run With The Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.
Self-enquiry. 2011. Pencil and charcoal. One of the therapeutic benefits of creativity is that is allows what’s inside to come out. As a tool to heal the depression and anxiety I was experiencing, I used the language of pencil or paint when I couldn’t or didn’t want to use words.
Mystery. 2013. Acrylic on canvas. Using art therapy as part of my healing, I was supported by North Tyneside Art Studio, and this was one of the pieces I created there.

Never Forget (the Light). 2012. Acrylic on canvas.
