Self-portraits painted from the beginning of lockdown to the present day. An exploration of the self from my perspective of having schizophrenia whilst experiencing lockdown. All painted using oil on canvas and are approximately 50cm x 60cm. Observing lockdown rules led to isolation and separation from family, friends, and groups that provide vital support with face-to-face contact. This has brought a new and unwelcome ‘normality’. Finding coping strategies has been invaluable in dealing with hallucinatory voices and heightened anxiety. Fortunately, having the opportunity to paint and sculpt has led to a semblance of ‘normality’ for me.

Walking the same path every day gave me so many ideas and time to think about the places I loved. I found my passion again for painting atmospheric and slightly abstracted landscapes.
This group includes some larger statement pieces and some mid-sized ones which would fit well in any room.
