Toria is a London-based artist. She practices her art despite mental health difficulties.

Making art, for me, is my voice…

When I started making art, after my hospital admission, I was mute.

Now I have regained my voice, my art is now the voice of my subconscious.

I usually love the process of creating art. However, this particular piece was traumatic to create and re-live. I’m glad I created this piece as it helps to unburden the trauma, bit by bit.
