""Diary Drawings" is an intimate reading and viewing experience that will appeal to readers interested in the relationship between art, therapy, and mental health."--"Foreword Reviews" "These witty, wretched drawings are a plea for mental illness to be treated like other illnesses, as something that happens, not something that someone, somewhere... has to be blamed for." - The Dubliner "An illuminating, hopeful book, highly recommended for anyone involved in the care, treatment or counselling of people who experience severe mental distress." - Therapy Today
Bobby Baker is (according to various sources) a National Treasure. In a career of more than 35 years, she has danced with meringue ladies, made a lifesize cake version of her family to be eaten by visitors and driven around London strapped to the back of a truck screaming at passers-by to 'Pull Yourselves Together'. She studied painting at St Martins School of Art from 1968 to 1972, is artistic director of an Arts Council funded company, Daily Life Ltd, and has a part-time senior research fellowship at Queen Mary University of London.
