Menopause - a personal journey
I am currently working on a series of paintings documenting the effects perimenopause had on both my mind and body and how I struggled to make sense of all these, often conflicting, emotions.
Using self-portraits, these images are as honest and as personal as I can be. I have tried to accurately capture the feelings I felt over a period of seven years before starting HRT.
I am hoping that through my paintings I can raise awareness and create a dialogue about the complexities of menopause and the different ways it can affect a woman’s life.
