Stay on the Path

A new collection of  artworks, which explore the process of drawing, stitching and binding as a way of processing complicated thoughts  and emotions relating to my on going recovery from and eating disorder and the affect that this has had on my sense of self.

The shoes and supporting objects are symbolic of my gradual steps forward on a difficult journey.

They are childrens shoes, sugar coloured and are “sticky” or overgrown and encrusted, often seeming to spread in to their environment or become engulfed by it.

The supporting objects are a result of an obcession for collecting.

Mostly found whilst out walking, they are items that I have found grounding or reassuring.
