Tiffany

Today’s face: Tiffany, inspired by Sktchy. I have CRPS, or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, in my right foot, which has now spread up my right leg and is mirrored in my left leg. I’ve had it for around 9 months now and It seems to be spreading quite rapidly at the moment. At 4am this morning it was in my knees. One of the worst symptoms is allodynia, or extreme sensitivity to touch, which means that I can’t touch the bed with them because to do so is extraordinarily painful. It’s hard to sleep with nothing from your thighs down touching the bed. What’s the solution? Get up and paint the frustration out. Art therapy is the best therapy.

Devin

Today’s face: Devin, inspired by Sktchy. I bought some wonderful handmade watercolours from artisanal producers Greenleaf and Blueberry in Colorado, USA. This is the first time I’ve used them and I’m in love with the intensity of their colour, how they mix and how they feel on the page. They are fabulous!
