"I painted 'Woman with a Secret' while I was hospitalised for severe depression in 2008. I was very unwell at the time, but was offered the opportunity to do some painting as part of my recovery. This was the first time I had ever painted, and I found myself lost in this world for just a few hours. It gave me momentary peace. I was later taken with how sad she looked, and thought it reflected the inner me. Despairing, but too afraid to tell anyone. Too scared to reach out for help."
