I hope every one is staying healthy, strong, positive, and creative.
In 2016 I visited the Sistine Chapel in Rome. I was in search of an inspiration after my mental health coliseum had collapsed six months prior. This was a monumental momentary experience. One that I contribute to the start of me painting. It evoked so many emotions, thoughts, and feelings.
I began to believe that it would be possible to manage, challenge, battle, and one day overcome my mental illness. In hope of living life with strength, stability, calmness, clarity, awareness, enthusiasm, peace.
Through my personal struggles with mental illness I have learned to acknowledge, accept, and embrace my mental health challenges.
Every day I work tenaciously on my mental health. In order for me to manage, challenge, and battle the beast I have designed my own daily script. Which includes multiple check ins, painting, psychotherapy, weightlifting, mediation, cognitive behavioral therapy, medication, and support groups (Including family and close friends).
On we go. Stay tuned.
