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".

Blogging will resume when my state of fusion has completed. It's been three months and it's not allowing me to focus on anything other than fusing. I'm online at Polyvore.com with my collages if anyone cares to follow my healing/fusion experience. Survivors are welcome to join my Polyvore group. To check it out, click here.

Will be back when my fusion process allows me to be present for life other than internal work. The good news is I have learned many answers about my programming and some cues to cause me to dissociate.

Please note I've added an email contact on my profile for those who have been trying to reach me.

I published my first collage on my blog today--something I was playing around with on Polyvore. Thanks for turning me on to them!

I didn't know I could look up other people there. I'm going to log back in and see if I can find you there.

I love this blog and your artwork, it is just beautiful.

I need to figure out how to make the text different colors. Blogger used to be a lot easier to dress up with blogskins, now it's impossible to figure out.

Wondering if these art pieces are photos or are they photoshopped collages? They're fantastic.
