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".


Hearts, Love, and Pink Stairs

Since my last post on June 30, the newly emerged part of me seems to go with stairs and hearts and love. I'm still processing what is happening but these are the sets telling the story:

7/12/2012 Head in the Clouds

7/12/2012 New Growth

7/14/2012 Breaking the Barrier to Love

7/15/2012 Ascending

I've had other parts of me integrate through my heart and have felt a physical sensation when that happened. I don't know if that's what this means or perhaps she is ascending to one of my higher selves (inner wisdom). Only good feelings have been connected to her since she escaped her internal "prison".
