It feels amazing to see my art on the billboards and kind of surreal. It just goes to show that anyone can be creative and produce art even if you have no formal training.
I have been creating art for many years now as part of staying well with my mental health issues. It helps with concentration, distracts me from my thoughts, I use bright colours to lighten my mood and i express my feelings on to a canvas. I’ve been painting at home alone for sometime now and it’s feels really good to share my art with my community. Thanks to all of my of my friends and family for their support. It means the world to me!
