Within my body of work, I explore the interconnection of nature and the human form in relation to invisible illness. I delve into the notion of identity, stripping back the faces and human figures in the same way society strips those affected by invisible disabilities of their sense of identity. Inspired by classical baroque period styles, I aim to create visual beauty while in turn generating awareness of conditions like Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis: “Myalgicencephalomyelitis… is a complex and disabling disease that affects many parts of the body, including the brain and muscles, as well as the digestive, immune and cardiac systems, among others. ME is classified as a neurological disorder by the World Health Organization.” – Emerge Australia*.
