Dive Down: Drawings from the Deep
A story about discovering beauty
A few years ago, I turned my world upside down. I left my job, my relationship, my home and packed my dog in my little blue car. It was the bravest and scariest time of my life.
I felt like the depression that I had been running from my whole life finally caught up with me. I took a month to do some journalling, meditating, and reading. As I worked through all of my feelings, I drew. And it became a little book. My friend Sam Attenborough added the words for me after the illustrations formed a story.
This self-help fairy tale features drawings of me and three Selkies - magical seal people - who lead me on a beautiful journey, through fear and out the other side...
