All of my life I have been an avid painter and multi-media artist. It's my hobby and one of my top passions. I stopped when I was ill, for about 4 years I didn't pick up a single art product. Which goes to show how seriously Mental Illness can effect a persons everyday life. I thought I had lost my talent do to my disorder.
Then, when I was well into recovery I finally caved and started back up again and what do you know my negative thoughts were WRONG !!!!!
I will update new Art as I go. To me. THIS is my therapy.
