I created the artwork above because no one is immune to mental strife. I have experienced both anxiety and depression, as have many of my family members and friends. One of the best forms of therapy is having the ability to talk to someone who is willing to listen; to provide another perspective. Since a picture can be worth a thousand words, sometimes art can be the best therapy... especially when words are hard to express.
