Collette Elam


"I have a diagnosis of #schizoaffective disorder and #bulimia. In the 80’s and 90’s I loved the music scene and I draw inspiration from that.

I paint because it fills the sleepless nights, I enjoy attention to detail, #colour, bling and fantasy. I hate the real world... Painting helps me with my concentration and if I can’t sleep it calms down and gives me something positive to do and achieve. I don’t like the real world and paining is an escape for me. I am happy when people appreciate what I have painted and this helps me to sleep better at night!"
