This project is an illustrated blog of my own journey through chronic pain. Through delicate lines, symbolism, a colourful palette and pattern design, I tackle weighty themes that are often daunting to the viewer in an accessible way. This project began as a form of art therapy in 2016 at a time when I was losing myself as a result of an accident and it saved me in so many ways. Now I am at a point where I have over 100 images, each capturing a moment in time on this journey and I am turning this illustrated blog into a book, pushing this project forward to the next stage of it’s own journey.
