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".


Project Endometriosis

A creative arts therapist based in Australia is having an actual gallery focused on endometriosis. Abuse survivors tend to have many health issues focused in the pelvic region including endometriosis. I was inspired to do my own collage based on the project through Polyvore.

I found it helpful to release thoughts on my own experience through art and recommend others who share this issue do the same.

For those who would like to learn more about it, here is the link to Project Endometriosis



Wondering if I'll ever know why Vietnam is a continuous theme in my memories. And why did 9/11 set off memories of that time?
