La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

My charcoal and mixed media works expose the strength found in private moments of vulnerability. Through art, I process sources of my own shame in hopes to encourage others
working to overcome theirs. I struggled with disordered eating from the age of eleven. My perception of health was defined by celebrities glorified in mainstream media. The resulting
strain on my mental and physical health was difficult for me, and those around me, to understand. My work reflects a desire to grasp this damage and generate understanding around
these issues.
