I myself have struggled with anxiety for the majority of my life and find misrepresentation to be frequent and very misleading to the public. The reality is misconstrued by under exaggeration and stigmas. Many artists have exposed their trauma through art, utilizing color and image to better represent their own struggle. I have decided the best way to display the reality of anxiety is to present it through mixed media. Through this project, a combination of artistic materials, I am showing you my reality as well as that of so many others who struggle from this not so easy illness in hopes of expressing what it is to me.
