Some of my art work was therapeutic. I used it in therapy to express things I couldn't in words. There are many devastatingly haunting works that show case the pain. Some are from my teens as I wrestle with life and its stressors.
All one ones I am wearing the orange shoe lace around my neck were done in 1981 after John Lennon's murder. Had I not had the outlet of drawing to work through my grief I am sure I would not be here today.
bleah...depressing. I didn't have anyone to talk to at the time. So I "talked" to my art pads.
