Paranoid Ideation Idealization

Lisa Shaw's avatar Lisa Shaw

This work is about mental health awareness. Specifically, caring for someone with a mental illness. There is validity in the effects of mental illness on family, friends, and loved ones. This includes loving someone with an addiction or any troublesome dysfunction. With mindful awareness, I found myself battling the same issues within another's mental illness, just in a different light. It proves once again that we are all the same. We are all connected, in our weaknesses....but also our strengths. I will be describing Isolation (the first piece), Paranoid Ideation (the second piece) and Idealization (the third piece), which is highly spiritual, in a written piece along with the artwork.
