126 - Lorna Beard - ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE


Acrylic, oil pastel, spray paint and pen on canvas.
I always use bold colors and I’m a painter of messages. This Samarivan is no different. Keeping a retro, fun vibe In the back ground Ive put the lyrics to ‘All you need is love’ by the Beatles. Because in the end, that is all we need.

When I was younger there was so much stigma around mental health. It wasn’t talked about. But there was the Samaritans. They supported me through periods of trauma, and I know I wouldn’t be here without them, they saved my life.
To support this project and ‘give back’ in a small way was an absolute must. Thank you Sarah for the opportunity and thank you to the Samaritan’s, a truly wonderful and vital lifeline.


Growing up being labelled ‘over sensitive’ and ‘eccentric’ and not academic, she felt like a square peg in a round hole. Throughout the years, she experienced and processed trauma behind closed doors.

What followed was years of anxiety disorder & panic, wrong jobs and feeling like she didn’t belong. She now channels these feelings and thoughts into her paintings to help others, to let them know she understands, and they aren’t alone, whatever they are facing. Lorna also spent some years as an art educator; teaching adults and children to paint.
