SYNOPSIS

For over 20 years, Liz Atkin's life was dominated by Compulsive Skin Picking (CSP). CSP is a complex physical and mental disorder that provides comfort, pleasure or emotional release from endlessly picking at often healthy skin, leading to bleeding, infection, scarring and mental distress, and affects as many as one out of 20 people. Despite tragedy and childhood circumstances, Liz confronted her condition head-on with creativity, creating intimate artworks, photographs and performances, and turned despair into healing. She is now an advocate for the disorder and an internationally acclaimed artist. Liz has spoken about her lived experience of CSP, artwork and recovery in both the UK and US, and most recently, she delivered the keynote address to open the TLC Global Conference for Skin Picking and Hair Pulling disorders in Dallas, Texas. Don't miss this opportunity to hear her remarkable story at the Fringe!
