The Inside Story

Original artworks offered exclusively through MakersPlace.com


Mental health disorders are a major public health concern worldwide with an estimated 450 million people living with some type of mental health illness. Life under COVID has further exacerbated this issue, creating an intense need for having open, non-judgemental conversations around mental health. This special series shines a light on what it is like living with a mental health disorder. I hope these new perspectives will help increase understanding and conversation around these common experiences and help fight against the stigmas surrounding them.

This series release is special because 30% of all sale proceeds are being donated to Brain & Behavior Research Foundation.

Major Depression

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder is a prevalent, yet highly misunderstood mental health illness. I try to capture the cyclic mood changes of Bipolar disorder using color, shapes, and alternating environments. A daytime scene captures the essence of mania: Sleepless nights, delusions, and irritability; while a night scene highlights depressive symptoms such as feelings of defeat, sadness, fatigue, and hopelessness.

Psychosis — Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is another mental illness that is highly stigmatized and misunderstood. Through this piece I hope to better define the relationship between psychosis (a syndrome) and schizophrenia (a mental health disorder which psychosis is often a symptom). This artwork highlights the disassociated thinking often present in Schizophrenia which I try to illustrate in a dynamic and vibrant separation of form.
