The Skin Collection was initially based upon six poems that were to do with self harming behaviour in the form of skin picking. As Isobel developed confidence she begun to use poetry to help describe the desperateness of her depression and mood swings. Isobel finally found a way of using words to put a voice to some very difficult feelings that were not only very confusing but also very destructive.
