Healing trauma with paint...

Painting helps me to heal the trauma of what I endured throughout my abusive relationship and drug addiction. Exploring and releasing emotions onto a canvas is a magical way to create artwork.

In my painting you can see my face.

I feel trapped. Surrounded in a haze of red to symbolise my pain.

The white figures are the ghosts of my children. They are moving further and further away from my grasp.

The green figure is my spirit guide. Always there. Always listening.

The white rings represent my two brothers. In the end, they helped me to save myself.

Always remember. You are not alone.

Artwork is my own.
