Survivor Art Warning

Keep in mind that survivor art is not about beauty. It reveals trauma...sometimes in a subtle way. Sometimes rather graphically. The beauty, to me, is in being a witness to my own healing from the images given to me by formerly traumatized and even suicidal alters.

Please use caution in viewing this site. I'm proud to be sufficiently healed to share this art (most of which was done from 1997 to 2000). All depicted in the images have integrated. This is me when I was "we".


Easel - SI alter saved

Easel as a little girl. The ad below her image is about drugs. (Not all alters have "regular" names.) Easel went with other images I found with art easels.

Easel as teen.

Adult Easel looking drugged.

This image reveals her "job". Not all Easel images were scanned. This connects directly with components in other Easel images.

What was intended to happen at unknown certain time, event, cue.

Easel saved. Healing but still looking shaken or frightened.

These images encompass several years of torn out magazine pages from numerous magazines. Yet, after awhile, I could recognize alters as soon as I saw them. This is not the same model. The big question. How did my system know that I would find the images that would match by similar elements to give me the answers? The child picture with words about drugs to her adult "job" of suicide alter? All adult images looking drugged?

Will be writing on Forbidden Topic on how my system defused self harm alters.
