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".


Someone's perception of the father

Lovely images of the person who was supposed to love and protect his child unconditionally. Guns, scary tools, very strange man. The image on the island screams isolation to me. The facial details are fairly close. Clothes also look confusingly feminine. The name of this collage is Effed Up F*ther.
