I am a self-portrait artist and my distinctively dark and evocative self-depiction intimately reflect my ongoing struggles with mental health. I have a fear of leaving home alone, which often leaves me feeling increasingly isolated. My photographs are all created within the same 2 by 1.5 metre space; my bed. I believe my bedroom to be the keeper of my trapped and often repressed emotions. I once had what felt like the luxury of creating work within the whole of my bedroom. But after my health worsened, bed is now the only place in which I feel well enough to create.  My life and are they have become, inextricable entwined, to bury this mental state deep within would allow it to thrive, but through my use of photography as a form of therapy, I am offered a cathartic release.
