Please tell her that I love her (abstract painting series) – (2017- ongoing)
In 2017, my younger child went to the hospital for depression and social anxiety, trying to kill themselves multiple times. I was devastated. I could not find the time nor the energy to create. When I did so, the figurative artworks were dark and death themed. I decided to go outside my comfort zone and explore abstract painting, forms, compositions, joyful colors, as a survival and healing tool. To find some joy in the place of despair I was. After 8 long months at the hospital, they’re back home and feeling better: I decided to share our family story to give hope to those going through similar situations.
