Misbehaving Body

This collection of work uses the processes of applique and embroidery to explore my experience of various aspects of my own body, where I have experienced distress and have been given a variety of diagnosis' by health professionals.

By using a colourful, tactile and fun approach, I seek to explore how our relationship with our bodies impacts on our physical experience. Where is the divide  between body and mind, if there is one at all? How much does our mental health affect how we feel in our bodies and vice versa and why doesn't modern medicine seem to consider this dichotomy and take it more seriously?
