Creativity as a healing tool, emotionally to describe my world
Spiritually to make sense of, occupationally to work alongside.”
Terence studied at Winchester School of Art, graduating in 1986 with a first class degree in textiles. He has had two varying careers as an artist, firstly in the fashion world where he worked as a freelance print designer and currently within the Occupational Therapy Department at the Bethlem Royal Hospital, as a specialist instructor in art and textiles.
Terence draws on his own mental health journey, from the perspective of an adult survivor.
I took a drawing to therapy, it helped me communicate an internal struggle and gain a deeper understanding of my situation. “Creativity sets me free from anxiety, trauma and obsession. I lose myself, but in the process discover who I am.”
OUT OF THE WAY
A selection of artworks, reflecting aspects of a spiritual journey, on and off the path. In 2012 I came across the South Croydon Buddhist Centre where I learnt to meditate and bring some stillness and simplicity into my life. It gradually dawned on me that in order to heal the past I would need to live in the present, I would need to get out of the way of myself. I prefer to let art speak for itself to the viewer, but if there are any metaphors they are of shadows into light and fears into freedom and flight.
