IMG_2033This drawing reminded me that in the darkest times we can find the brightest gifts.

Thirty years ago I was suffering from eating disorders. My life was dictated by food: I had huge binges that would last for days in a row. They would be interrupted only by fasting completely. My life was a roller coaster. I felt so lonely, isolated and ashamed of myself.

In my drawings I lived a parallel life. In that ‘reality’ I was supported by a huge circus tribe, nurtured by them and fully loved. My life was an adventure. When I look at the art I can feel the strength of my mind. I found a healing device, a vehicle that carried me through the deepest despair.

It makes me smile: there is no such thing as loss, our life is always rich if we are willing to see it.

Feel free to check my exhibit out at the Lake view library in Madison.

Love,

Marielle
