A little bit more about me...

Firstly, welcome to my blog! In this space I aim to give you a personal insight as to how Jenna’s Curio Cabinet came about and what my work represents to me. I want to take you on a journey with me, through personal events in order to identify with my story from madness to success.

My artistic practice has always been heavily influenced by my mental health, even before I was fully aware I had a diagnosis. Leading up to that point, I just thought I was going mad, that I was somehow wrong or broken.

Little did I know how relevant it would all be, in later life...

As much as we feel we may have strayed from the ‘right’ path in life, it is always in hindsight that we realise the gravity of an event and the memories we carry from it.

There is a lesson to be learnt in everything, it’s just whether you choose to see it.

Despite the fact that my life has been incredibly testing in a very personal way, I wouldn’t change a thing. It has given me a perspective I would not have gained otherwise.

It has given me a voice, and with that voice I will speak openly with aims to break and reduce the stigma of Borderline personality disorder and mental health in our society.

I look forward to sharing my journey with you

I want to move, I can't. I want to speak, I stammer. The list goes on. It came on hard when I was thirty-seven. It took six years to diagnose properly. Now with medication the symptoms are suppressed enough that I can move and speak nor…
