struggling deeply

Collaged within the layers of scrap fabrics, Mola style eye cut felt, plastic off cuts, transfer prints and a hidden wire structure- the multi-coloured textile jacket tells the difficult struggle I went through living with body dysmorphia.

beginning to see past the dysmorphic gaze

I didn’t know if I’d ever see through the layers of collaged clashing thoughts, emotions and fake body perceptions. I never thought I’d ever see the true me in my reflection and I’d live forever seeing body distorting shapes and forms.

growing stronger

Learning through colours and self inflicted pain..I found myself again..

Recovery is not flat..it’s bumpy.. and uneven but you learn to live with who you truly are
