“This body of work explores topics relating to the recovery of a mental disorder, but in a way that triggers sensations. I use my experiences of recovery to aid my creation of the chaotic psychological landscape that is experienced in my mind. It is as if my anxiety is forcing me to rewrite reality every day, so I give it what it wants and create those realities.
“The manipulation I am creating with my images shows that, although this psychological space in my head can be terrifying most of the time, I am the creator and destroyer of it. I have the ability to make it whatever I want it to be, and the same goes for every one of us.”
