In today’s world full of social media, it’s easy to think everyone has a picture-perfect life. But what if you don’t feel like smiling and laughing? What if you don’t feel like getting out of bed?
I was touched by the wonderful response to my latest feature show when darkness comes. I never imagined that my art and prose would connect with so many people. At the reception in May, several people spoke with me about their own struggles with depression, and how my work resonated with their own experiences. Some spoke to me about loved ones who struggle, and how they could see aspects of them in my art. And at least one gallery visitors told me the show opened her eyes to issues she really didn't know much about.
