The above piece is titled “Reduce Mental Illness Stigma” and was made because of my huge passion to increase awareness and education about mental illness and to reduce mental illness stigma and suicide. The woman in the illustration is crying green tears to represent the pain of bipolar disorder and other mental illness and the pain of mental illness stigma. She is crying green tears as green is the color used on the ribbon for  mental illness. Medium used was graphite pencil and green glitter acrylic paint for the tears.

This piece is titled “HOPE” and I drew ribbons on the letters that spell out the word HOPE to represent recovery, hope and survival.

I love her hugely and am so blessed to still have her in my life to love and spend precious time with.

I was inspired to add some of my artwork on one post from the blogger… Irene https://theyoncecalledherpumpkin.wordpress.com/

She gave me the idea last night. I am also going to add a widget (or whatever you call it) to the top or side of my home blog page so when I add more artwork to a post I can continue to place the artwork there, as well. Thank you Irene for the idea.

I hope you like my artwork.


I sell my artwork and prints for a price, plus shipping and handling costs.

I will also draw a picture or artwork to your liking. If you give me an idea or a sample or a photograph I will draw it to your liking.

If you are interested in anything or if you have any questions, please make a comment and/or send me an email.

Thank you. I hope to hear from you soon.

May your days overflow with blessings. Hugs.
