My books were a tool that allowed me to explore my past, all that happened to me, and the people who were guilty in their actions towards me. I was also able to determine who were positive influences in my life at that time and discover my own strengths, it was cathartic to be able to make sense of my past and pull it all together in a way that I could safely contain it, so that I need never explain it, allowing others to read it for themselves.

As an artist it was vital to me that I expressed my feelings in a visual way, the work you see below is an expression of what it was like to be me as a child, and how labels are put on us.
