Lost and Found The focus of this project was exploring my journey of self-discovery and healing. My intention has been to create a collection of work that portrayed an incredibly complex situation in a simple way. My illustrations have been guided by my mum’s writing. She wrote a collection of pieces retrospectively looking at a time when I was unwell in hospital. Her words felt poignant and accurate in a way that I have struggled to express. My Mum’s writing had a degree of emotional distance, which has provided me with a perspective that I did not have at the time.
