Steph’s vibrant illustrative paintings and drawings explore narrative, spontaneity, play and the challenge of living with OCD. “For a long time the disorder called the shots with my art, in what and how I could paint. Sometimes I used art to manage my symptoms, but now I DARE to approach it as having fun, making mistakes and enjoying a looser line leading me to excitement and hope in going forward.” – Steph Bates
