'Shipwrecked' Letters from the Lost Days, Pyrography woodburning.

'The Unbinding I' Letters from the Lost Days, Pyrography woodburning.


Statement

I am a Scottish/Polish Fine Artist and lover of gothic and classic literature, working with oil paint and pyrography woodburning.

My most recent work, Letters from the Lost Days, is the metaphorical and expressive outpouring of my past experiences and emotions, as an artist living with Complex-Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Not only has this ongoing project been beautifully cathartic for me to create, it is my aim to spread awareness about C-PTSD and PTSD, with the hope that my works might resonate with others living with these conditions and help them to understand their own thoughts and feelings as they navigate these new waters.
