Art as Therapy

June 2019 - Current (Age 33 - 37)

Although all my art has been a form of therapy, Art as Therapy is a term I started using in 2019 to describe little 6" x 8.5" sketchbooks. The point of these sketchbooks was to forget about technique, subject matter, and creating larger pieces with the intent to sell and get back into creating pieces just for me.

 

I have completed four sketchbooks so far and am working on a fifth. The illustrations are drawn back to back. I started keeping these sketchbooks in 2019 when I entered a drug (marijuana) induced psychosis. These books illustrate my life with bipolar disorder and psychosis in a surreal/fantasy type way. They are not for sale at this time but you can read them all below. If you're new to my journey, I'd start with Sketchbook 1: Triggers Journal. Although most of the pieces can stand alone, each sketchbook does lead into the next. Sketchbook 2: Madness Journal is my favourite. At some point I do hope to create video readings of Conversations with the Algorithms and Navigating Wonderland.
