Tossing and turning each night. Safe only under the duvet…You hide deeper and deeper


Art as therapy

Sorry guys it’s been a while. Finally uploaded some photos recently. Included was 4 canvases I created last year and early this year in the first few months of being signed off ill with depression.

The first one was stress. It was how I pictured the stress of work on my life.

It’s a tracing of a brain out of greys anatomy, held with pins on which elastic bands are stretched. The word stress is also pricked out on the paper.

Next came insomnia

A dolly under her duvet with only her pigtails and feet peeping out. The word insomnia was embroidered on the ‘duvet’.

Next came anxiety.

When you’re anxious even soduko puzzles make you anxious. Along with that, a collage of newspaper print of anxious words and sentences.

The last in the set was depression.

A collage of fabric, paper and stitching. The fog of depression in the tissue paper. But through it all, there remains a golden thread of hope.

What are other peoples experiences? Makes you wonder if the order of creation was of any significance
