(Ink on Canvas)

I was diagnosed having borderline disorder, which is due to early childhood trauma (sexual abuse), that led to survivor behavior, addiction, depression, anxiety, and many mores - my life as been a roller coasters of thoughts and emotions - I put impulsively my emotions, my chaos first into a canvas that after I'm refining the piece trying to find balance and composition in the painting- this process helps me find, acknowledge, and recognize feelings that have been lurking in my subconscious- it's a present-moment process and very therapeutic for my condition - creating is not a choice it's a strong voice that needs to let go.
