In the beginning of 2018 I was diagnosed with anxiety and severe depression.
Months later, my mother passed away, and my world collapsed!
I started questioning what life would be without her, questioning my worth grappling with this new reality, and who I am after this loss.
But I realized that I would never fill my mother's void, it simply wouldn't happen. Instead, I must find other ways to connect to my inner self and fill in her loss.
That was when I dropped myself into painting art-making , without worrying too much about having a single art style.
I thought of it as an expression of my inner self ... in another word "healing process."
Painting enabled me to perceive beyond the tangible, it emancipated my mind & soul, allowed me to explore into unknown areas, and liberated me. At the same time I began taking Expressive Arts therapy with my coach who helped me awaken my child's imagination and creativity to discover who I am and how to engage with my senses.
When I was hesitant and worried about the lack of style in abstract painting, she told me “You can not put your soul in a certain box, let it travel everywhere and in all different places, be the unboxable artist”.
