My name is Alice Knight and I have been diagnosed with personality disorder. This is why I came to Creative Response and I discovered that art helped me express my emotions and make sense of my feelings. The art has helped me channel my feelings, and enable me to express them to other people.
My work is an exploration of using different media and it has developed into more defined symbols and ideas. I started by using symbols to represent certain features in my life, especially the support I have received for depression.
I have been exploring a variety of media starting with chalk and oil pastels then watercolour, oil paints and acrylic, collages and printing, all on a variety of surfaces. I have also experimented with needle work.
