Art replaces the pain pills that cloud and limit my activity and ability to focus on normal everyday tasks. With medications I lose the sensation of being a productive person, of feeling useful and with art in my life, I regain the feeling of worthiness, and life again has value. Art has become a release from the pain that holds me back in life. Art numbs the pain and creates a new reality for me. Art gives a sense of accomplishment that the pain normally did not allow me to achieve. Without art, I would lose a sense of who I am and what I can accomplish in my life. I want to bridge the connection that I have found in the art to be useful for others like myself.
