On this page, you’ll find my #PAINtings, and my poetry.

I began painting in this colourful, abstract style (mainly in acrylics) when I found myself in burning need of a creative outlet for the frustration of not having the words for my experience of chronic pain. Assessments, doctor’s appointments, and just not enough words for the exquisite nuances of bodily pain. 

My poems begin in my head – growing – often in bed, or in the bath. Then they get wings, and grow so big that they force their way out of my head, and fly.
