"I’m an illustrator who has suffered with depression and anxiety throughout my life. I’m very interested in the connection and stigma around art and mental health. This piece was created over a period of difficult months for me and therefore represents the struggle between staying motivated and being self-critical during a time of difficulty.
I think the perfectionism and restrictiveness in my work also reflects my personal attitude towards my art, feeling that everything must be planned, contained and neat, and must take a long time and a lot of hard work and effort to be a valid piece of work."
