No eye brows!
Coming to terms with another bout of alopecia that is developing into alopecia universalis; I decided to take a few days off work. I have ‘suffered’ from alopecia all my life and and always recovered one way or another. The cause is not ever discovered and the betterness is usually welcomed but always tentative. I have never thought about the disorder as it seems to come and then go, to concern myself would make matters worse; I think. However, this time I find myself loosing all my hair, body hair is bearable, but being without eye lashes and brows for a mascara girl is horrible … So have been spending a few days giving up trying remember where my brows were and discarding the pencil!
Like I said I’ve been here before and regrowth may happen but a few days leave has given me some space to feel sorry for myself and do a bit of art.
I began doing these screen prints a week or two back and it was a bit of a failure. However I decided to carry on using the original paper and stencils but with a new frame and better squeegee. So the effect is random … but like my ugly child I can see her redeeming features.
The days have been well spent; I have one more to go and tomorrow I will visit St Bride’s Foundation and ‘they’ will I think care little about my no eyebrows
