(Oil Pastel on Paper)
About the Artist
I firstly started off drawing at age six by doing little flowers and cartoon characters. Ever since, I always had that passion and would try new things and experiment with different mediums and techniques. If I may seem I’m not that versed in using paint I do more dry media but…in time I hope to embark on it. I find that art for me personally is like therapy; it’s calm and teaches you patience. Also, for me, it is a good way of letting out how you truly feel inside in a non-verbal way. I basically use art as a way to keep my mind active as well as to put out how I feel about something or someone.
Art has a way of expressing one’s feelings about mental health through non-verbal expression. I #LivetoTell for those who are in a dark place in hopes that they can be more open with their feelings.
