The Boundaries Series
The Boundaries Painting Series is a mixed media contemporary art series all about women's mental health struggles. I wanted to really dig in to the emotional experiences of overwhelm, shame, resilience, trauma, the delicate hold on physical rights and autonomy, the masks we wear, and the cultural boundaries we try to break along with the personal boundaries we need to enforce. All things that can have incredible impacts on our mental well being. And they do, since according to the Office on Women's Health, in the last calendar year 1 in 5 US women struggled with a mental illness.
