For over 20 years, Liz Atkin's life was dominated by Compulsive Skin Picking (CSP), a behavior where one picks their skin endlessly at often healthy skin, leading to bleeding, infection, and scarring. This behavior provides comfort, pleasure and emotional release and may be seen in one out of 20 people. 

Despite these circumstances, Liz confronted her condition by creating creative intimate artworks, photographs and performances. This turned her despair into healing, making her an advocate for the disorder and an internationally acclaimed artist.
