About the Author

Andrew Locke is an artist working with varied and mostly time based media, and has been living with Schizophrenia since a diagnosis in 1997. A long road to recovery took him to graduate at University of the Arts London in 2009, with a 2:1, and go on further to achieve an MA and MRes, also at UAL. He has worked at Tate, The Barbican, and also as an art therapy assis-tant, all for much of his adult life.

Currently engaged in personal artist film making projects, and thinking about engaging in research about his lived experience of schizophrenia, and also notably, building on insight gained about this condition. A long time ago, a personal decision that taking a very effective and revolutionary medication could mean living virtually a normal life, and how this has felt like a new frontier for someone living with this condition. A sense of importance reaching more widely than his own experiences, lead to wishes about a better prognosis and picture for future individuals living with schizophrenia.
