Why do I feel scared of everything?
Why do I feel scared of everything? Its a question I've been asking myself a lot over the last seven months, and one I thought about a lot at the start of lockdown. There's been so much to deal with in that time. Who would have thought the human race would be trying to survive a global pandemic on January 1st 2020?I've had a lot of fear in me this year, and that is normal. Fear is a normal emot...
Apocalypse: Empty Streets I
During these difficult and changing times, the empty streets present a multitude of complexities and questions regarding confinement and freedom, isolation and protection, and the value of human presence and labour, or the lack thereof. Empty Streets is a digital collage collection made up of pre-Apocalypse photographs that combine images of a world before our current pandemic: a world where ex...
I didn't paint this with an intention to make it deep, I just couldn't paint the face. I decided to put a hole with blood pouring out instead of where the face would usually be.Its called 'The feeling of feeling'I've often contemplated many deep things and when I do I feel like a sea of anxiety just washes over me, recently I heard many people feel this way sometimes, but as I said this was acc...
It makes me feel overwhelmed and therefore feels though I am drowning in cess pool of emotion.
I deal with fear, like most, by spending time alone. Processing. Processing all the concerns and thoughts to come that ponder as I become anxious.

Me, Myself & I
These are some self portraits I took over the quarantine period and I feel that they represent how a lot of people felt during this time period, as a lot of us were looking for better times and a brighter future as well as being fed up and bored when it seemed like better times would never arrive.
False Evidence Appearing Real
There is so much going, so much that feels out of our control or reach. 2020 in summary has been revealing, heartbreaking and scary. We’re learning how to cope and survive a Pandemic. It all feels like a bad dream, but I keep a 10% pool of optimism in my back pocket. How ? , you ask. Everyday that I’m fortunate to open my eyes, I challenge myself to focus on the blessing in that alone. Every...

Sometimes, you feel so bad you can do nothing with it. Some people at some point feel a little better if they hurt themselves (or they just think they do). I have to admit I am one of them. I have the fear of my own self now.
I am a womanI am a sisterI am a daughterI am an auntBut I am also a fighter for women's rightsI have seen things that would make you weepHeard things that would make your skin crawlBut yet I wake up every day ready to tackleWhatever society has to throw at meI will not fallI will rise & fight until my sisters And I are deemed equals
Fear of Falling
Everywhere I go, I carry my chalk bag with me. It's a small grey and white pouch (it could only fit 2 tennis balls inside) with an adjustable strap that fits around my waist; I wear it when I'm climbing. I climb at my local bouldering gym, 3 or 4 times a week, usually early in the morning, sometimes mid-afternoon if I'm meeting friends who are late risers. The chalk keeps my hands dry - I think...

Who am we?
This digital manipulation of film photography serves as a reminder that even in these desolate and undertain times, it is important to challenge ourselves, the rolls we play on this planet, who am you? More importantly - who am you wanna have been?
During this time of uncertainty I often find myself dwelling upon my own personal degrees of loneliness. The daunting feeling of social distancing yourself away from the idea of love. That constant feeling of having to put a smile on your face, even on the days that hurt the most. Constantly giving off the impression that you are fine and swimming, but in your mind you constantly feel as if you...
Light at the end
Fear is an obstacle to be overcome, while we fear the unknown, the dark places, what we don't know, if you push through there will always be light at the end.
