Welcome to Art of Bloom.
I’m a 23 year old student from London, although I am currently living in Sheffield. I graduated from my BA Criminal Justice and Criminology from the University of Leeds in July 2018, and I am currently completing an MA in Filmmaking.
I have struggled with my mental health for as long as I can remember. I have always had anxiety and in 2014 I developed an eating disorder, of which I consider myself to be mostly recovered from. I am also diagnosed with depression, and I have OCD which hasn’t yet been formally diagnosed. Every day is a struggle, but there are certain things which I find can help to make this journey more manageable. For me, the most effective activities which help and distract me when I’m having a bad day are; spending time with my pets, crafting and watching films.
On this blog I will be sharing ideas and inspiration to help you find what helps you. From craft ideas, to good films, to books. Please let me know how you get on with anything you try, even if it isn’t something from the blog! I’m always interested in learning and understanding different methods.
My contact form is always open for anyone who would like to talk about anything.
