Art-Therapy

I have an ACE score of 7. (thanks mum)

I used to struggle to focus; My anxious-mind would rather be ruminating on past-traumas and percieved future-perils.

The only way I could be present in an academic environment was by doodling in the margins. Doodling, sketching, scrawling, and expressing myself in a two-inch narrow gap.

A scratchy sketch of a stick-man camping in a forest under the rain.
I was not always a happy camper
A tiny sketch on lined paper of a house about to be crushed by a boulder
I suffered from depression with a dash of impending doom.
A crude mandala-style drawing using red and black biro ink on lined-paper
Drawing repeating patterns helped to keep me grounded.

It was a coping- mechanism I leaned on in my professional life.

A series of abstract drawings
With some encouragement, I broke out of the margins.

I made my way from pen & paper into Photoshop.

I upcycled,

Working on my biggest bit of #arttherapy yet.

I’ve distilled my demons.

I even put it all over my big dumb face.

I’m a much happier camper now.
