Hello there I am a severe OCD sufferer, I have had my disability all my life which has been very hard and difficult. I wish not to get into the technical and dark aspects of my mental disorder , but what I would like to say is that painting and art has really helped through my life and to somewhat control my illness. I have been painting for the past 30 years and never had a show no one seems to be interested because I am self taught and haven't been to a serious art school please check JDavies.net for a view of what I do, if anyone can help show or promote my work or any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks JDavies 2017.
