Drawings & sketchbooks 

Art is many things to me. It's a way of communicating, expressing myself, engaging with characters and exploring the world around me. It can also be simply a source of absolute enjoyment.

These illustrations have been drawn to capture some of the more painful intense emotional states I have experienced as part of my BPD. It can be hard to convey the force of the emotions in words alone.

A mental health nurse I met during a really hard time in my life suggested that I conceptualise my self-critical & self-punishing thoughts as a character. That way, she said, I could try talking back to them, ask them what they want and see if I could change my relationship to them. I turned to drawing to help me do this.

for fun

Yes I have BPD but that's just one part of me. I have many moments of joy in my life and love to capture those feelings in my art. I am a very imaginative person and I think that shines through in the images below.
