These three works represent the calamity, and coping mechanisms of life-long anxiety and depression suffering. There’s so much you don’t see: The sleepless nights, exhaustion, debilitating fear, loneliness, misunderstandings, the sometime-relief of solitude, the opportunities missed. It was art that saved this artist, that gave her a voice, a place to belong, a community. These pieces are meant to touch someone, maybe you, deep down inside…where you long to be touched by another healing soul. Art reminds us to breathe.
