Drawing and emotional processing are aspects that facilitate myself and my research. Lines, arrows, squares and circles on a two-dimensional plane clarify many aspects of the research subjects, open the mind, shape thinking and render connections visible, as well as aiding me in developing theories. I also apply colours, forms and brush strokes on wide surfaces, which creates a deeper understanding of a variety of subjects. Many emotions awaken and rise to the surface through the work of the researcher. They can relate to research topics directly and simultaneously connect to personal experiences and emotions. Art that is created in connection with emotions in this way can help individuals process and integrate their emotions, which in turn makes the researcher become more self-aware. At the same time, the researcher becomes more objective with regard to the research material. Art making facilitates resilience when the researcher is faced with uncertainties and it creates channel for containing the new knowledge.
