Exploring my brain thru art.

I am working on a series of abstract paintings just now. It’s a very personal journey exploring memory and self through contemplative abstract intuitive painting.

I started it because my memory is something that I battle with and it seems to have shattered like a mirror. I needed an outlet to pour my emotions into. I need to express all the translucent layers of memory that only ever seem to give half a story.

I have called the series ” The Remembering “.

I’ve honestly poured my soul into these as I try to come to terms with some very hard stuff concerning my memory and trauma..

Child alters like to say the worst things.

Think you’re having a bad day? Well my 3 year old child alter, Vee, just told my therapist that she’d wanted to show her her new pink stripey underwear!!!!

My therapist part laughed part smiled but didn’t say anything. She was probably just counting her blessings that adult me knows it’s not appropriate and that I have such a firm grip on the alters most of the time!!

I am still cringing!!!! Arghhhh shut up Veeeeeee!!!
