This painting is the first and more than likely not last of me telling my story, my truth, my journey and my battles with depression and anxiety, and the many counseling sessions that have made me who I am today.This work explores my own personal struggles with the ability to be open and vulnerable with those around me. With the use of mixed media, such as papers from old counseling emails, the work is given hidden layers of truth. With the many social stigmas that have been developed against people of color who deal with a mental disorder it is through this painting that I aim to start conversations around depression.
