Mental health awareness has been my inspiration in my practice, inspired by my Fiancé Ryan as he has had struggles with his mental health. I wanted to show what it feels like living with a mask on every day.
The balaclava in my work symbolises so many things in Northern Ireland, especially evil. I used it to showcase a hiding of emotions underneath the mask, and how low you can feel. I am hoping the future will bring success and allow me to work with people with different health problems, and provide them an art platform to be able to express themselves in many ways.
Venue: Arts for All, Cityside Retail Park
