A limited edition print run of 10 by artist Kim Noble
Kim Noble is a mother, artist and author who has Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). DID is a creative way to cope with unbearable pain. The main personality splits into several parts each having an amnesic barrier between them. In and out of hospital from the age of 14, with no formal art training, Kim and her alters became interested in painting in 2004 after spending a short time with an art therapist. The resulting 13 artists each have their own distinctive style, colour and themes that they work with. Many are unaware they share a body with other artists. Combined, they have had over 60 exhibitions, nationally and internationally.
Noble was the first Artist in Residence at Springfield University Hospital in Tooting, South West London. Her book ‘All of me’ was published by Piatkus in 2011. Noble has had many TV and radio appearances, including the Oprah Winfrey Show, This Morning Show, Anderson Cooper Show and BBC Radio1 with Victoria Derbyshire.
The body of work on Creative Future’s shop is by Kim’s persona Abi. Loneliness and loss are themes found in Abi’s work, along with the pull between leaving or arriving.
