My name is SabineK. In 2010 I became very poorly after the birth of my son. I suffered Post Partum Psychosis. I continued to struggle with a chronical mental health condition.
6 long years I painted excessively, because of mind racing and Insomnia. During my recovery of PPP I lost 2 important family members. Painting became my toolkit for therapy!
In the last 4 years I raised awareness of PPP & informed about Action Post Partum (APP) through art exhibitions. I have continued to be a messenger of my lived experiences and raised money for peri natal/post natal mental health.
I contributed to the interior design of a mother and baby unit via a family stakeholder group. My art has been used in the facilities by Devon Partnership.
My mood swings are like surfing the waves, up and down or like an ongoing marathon without an ending!
