These paintings use the garden and open natural space as a metaphor for living, surviving and thriving despite depression and anxiety. Painted using the finest pigments, these pieces are totems of hope, triumph, and beauty that mingle in an overwhelmed mind.
It isn’t all black and bleak. It is complicated and full of color, confusion, decay, growth, and beauty. There is optimism, light, and energy. There is fear, desperation and stress, dismay, vibrance, hope, chatter, loneliness, strength, and overwhelm…all existing together and evolving into new compositions each and every day. Tending to our gardens we stand united.
