Art is one of the ways in which I express myself. My depression and anxiety often seep into my work. As much as I would like to say that my mental illness doesn’t define me, it’s definitely a part of me. It shows in everything I do and say. I’ve accepted that it’s a part of me and I try to showcase it in my pieces. It’s both a way I express myself and a way to give people a glimpse into living with mental illness.
