Accumulated Self Portraits 2008 -16

Fotografia Digitale, Ritratto, 100x100x100cm
I am a visual artist based in London. Physicality underpins a creative practice with my skin as a primary source for corporeal artwork and imaginative transformation. Compulsive Skin Picking dominated my life for more than 20 years, but through a background in dance and theatre, I confronted the condition to harness creative repair and recovery. I create intimate artworks, photographs and performances exploring the body-focused repetitive behaviour of skin picking. I have exhibited and performed in therapuetic settings, galleries and venues in the UK, Australia, USA and Japan. I aspire to de-stigmatise Compulsive Skin Picking and mental illness. I aim to raise awareness and advocate recovery through public talks, specialist commissions, residencies and exhibitions.
These self portraits reimagine and transform the sites of my skin previously dominated by Compulsive Skin Picking. Art has helped me confront and manage this disorder.
