What lies hidden?

This is the thought behind a series of images for an ongoing body of work. Many of us face illness, trauma or inner challenges that are invisible from the outside. Explore with me the effect this has on our lives, our relationships, our ability to feel part of the rest of the world and the difficulty in communicating how and who we are. It can become a burden to be avoided, a cause for a mask or a burning need, never satisfied. The focus of the work is on communication rather than on the illness/ trauma itself. If you would like to be part of this project or know someone who would benefit from finding an artistic expression let me know via the contact box here, on my website. You can also write to me with your story.

I look forward to hearing from you!
