/Self/ portraits have been an important part of my recovery process…monitoring, connecting and keeping in touch with myself…while staring into the mirror with a brush, felt tip or a pencil in my hand.
More recently I have been creating #seemetoseeyourself portraits for other women in transition or recovery too. Been drawn to them…and vice versa…pun intended.
The portrait sessions are a space to be seen and witnessed, to honour the healing process and our place in it. The resulting acrylic and mixed media artworks a witness to and a celebration of a turning point, or a particular stretch of the journey.
Feeling allowed….even…especially…onto the canvas. And the space in between.
If you feel drawn to this, or know of someone who might be, or who is in need of this, please pass this post on and let them know I am ready to arrange a sitting, either online or in my SE London studio.
Please do share and spread the word…for more women aware of and proud of their /captured/ moments of healing.
