PORTFOLIO

Intrusive Series

For a long while I have experienced mental health difficulties which culminate in spells of acute anxiety and OCD that can last for days and sometimes months. It used to make working hard. In this series, I am trying to use my art to process some of my emotions. All of these are painted when I have been very anxious. They are self-portraits, painted rapidly, trying to express feelings more than capture a literal likeness. In this way I do find them a more truthful portrait.
