Artist. Writer. Creative.
Becky Handley is an artist and writer from the green hills of Derbyshire.
She creates every single day and her first book 'I want to be here' was self-published in July 2021. 'I want to be here' chronicles her journey with her mental health through poetry, photography and collage.
She is also a painter, specialising in colourful, abstract art.
'I want to be here' chronicles my journey with my mental health from an extremely dark time to a place where I truly believe I can find healing.
The idea for it came to me almost fully formed and I knew I had to make it and that is what I did.
I wrote every word, took every photograph, made every collage and then put it all together in InDesign. I am extremely proud of it but I know it is only the beginning.
