These illustrations were done in the course of a writing therapy, due to the fact that the artist was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of 32. In a distinctive style, the images reflect personal experiences – the struggle to learn the English language and to overcome frustration with writing or spelling. Female figures, trapped in large letters, are beset by graphical patterns growing from their heads. The series effectively points up the difficulties faced by dyslexics when trying to meet their own and society’s expectations.
