I tend to draw from what inspires me. I want to eventually expand to other visual mediums in a professional capacity. The human condition is complex and experienced differently by every individual. I want to explore it in as many ways as I can.
We have to be acutely aware, too, of the human impact on the environment, and how we are destroying it immeasurably fast.
It is also critical that societies not only are made aware of, but actively are educating about and treating individuals with mental illness and disabilities. I personally have depression, PTSD, anxiety, and ADHD, and take medication daily. It's a daily struggle. But with treatment, I have found I am able to release the chains in my mind, live a fuller life, and make my voice heard. With a lifetime living under the mask that my mental illnesses created, I have learned that asking for help was and still remains one of the best, yet hardest, decisions I have made.
We need each other to make this world better. Let us start helping each other now.
