"Anxiety and depression make us feel heavy, lethargic, weighed down, like the sky is falling in on us, life is full of falling boulders that are sent to crush us.
I am an artist living in Brightlingsea on the North Essex coast. I make quirky figurative paintings. Mental health, both good and bad is central to my work. I have had person experience of depression and anxiety and also cared for family members who have been affected. I believe deeply in the power of creativity to sooth my soul and connect my busy mind to the universe."
