HOW ART BECAME THERAPY, AND OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGE OF BEING A DISABLED ARTIST IN THE ART WORLD.
I had always made drawings from a young age.
During a recent mental health treatment & brain injury diagnosis, I was told that my first concussion was at 9 years old. I struggled with learning and concentrating all through schooling, but if you put a pencil and paper in front of me I would behave. With drawing, I was calm & praised. In most cases during schooling, I could not cope with it all and praise was never really present except for sports & my art.
