My younger sister, Katie, developed OCD last March, our mother had a mastectomy and five days later England went into a national lockdown. The aim of the work is to make people aware of the hidden battle that OCD sufferers continuously experience, and to challenge common preconceptions. Discussing how her anxiety and emotional state are affected on a daily basis revealed a range of scenarios where compulsive behaviour and thoughts present in different ways. Each scenario is illustrated with a portrait of Katie on which she has intervened to show the type and intensity of her anxiety.
