Anti-Anorexia Art

As an artist myself, I find drawing and especially scribbling rather therapeutic (well, most of the time!). There are plenty of literature documenting sufferer’s struggles as they embark on the road to recovery, and plenty of websites with detailed information on eating disorders and tips to stay on the path to health, but very few sites seem to be dedicated to the artistic expression of the road to recovery or indeed the illness itself.

Thus, I have set up a group on DeviantART, an artist community website, which may be worth taking a look at.

Here is an extract from our introductory page:

Welcome
Art can be a fantastic way of expressing our thoughts and exploring our Eating Disordered lives. This group is for anyone in recovery from an Eating Disorder (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Compulsive Overeating and Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified).

We encourage members to post non-triggering creative art and literature that are aimed at addressing the underlying causes of the disease, feelings and emotions.

Who can join?
This group is for anyone who is currently suffering from any Eating Disorder or is a family or friend who knows someone who is suffering

Why not take a look?
