Anorexia Nervosa 1 (two faced) 

print from original oil pastels on paper 

93 Birdwood Road

This work is one in a series of four that explore my relationship with food and my family. The series represents a catharsis to the pain of severe Anorexia Nervosa.


I love art! Not always the process or even the results, but the endeavour; what it means to me and how it helps me understand myself and the world. I am suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, which nine months ago was severe, and no doubt made worse by the previous years of lock-down. Thankfully, I have turned a corner. Painting and drawing helped me through the worst of times. It seems appropriate to exhibit one of a series of similarly themed works within the confines of a birdbox, as that is how I felt at home in lock-down. This is my first exhibition of my work outside of my bedroom.
