Why & Who
I make art simply because I have to.
I am a mental health activist simplify because it is my purpose in life.
I'm a mother, an artist, a mental health activist, and I carry a diagnosis or two... I understand where you are and what you are trying to achieve.
Art allows me time to quiet my overly busy mind and focus on something I love. It's therapy, an escape, a sanctuary.
And using it as a medium to smash the stigma of mental health is how I illustrate that the value of art is more than just something pretty to look at. It's a starting point in an exploration of feelings.
It's about it's about changing people's perspective on how art can soothe, empathise, express, share a feeling, provoke feelings and start important conversations.
