About the Artist
I suffer from what is called Complex PTSD which is sustained from many years of ongoing childhood abuse and neglect. My mother's passing this year was very difficult and complicated for me as she was flawed but she was my only parent. In 2020 I spent most of the last 6 months of my life in institutions. I spent August in at Riverwind, a terrible program, I spent September and October at Willow Haven which was the inspiration for one of my pieces, I spent 21 days in Abbott Hospital, I spent Christmas and my birthday at Wayside chemical dependency treatment center where I made my other piece. I can now say that I have 75 days clean and sober. I am free of suicidal thoughts that burdened me for so long after my mom's death. Life feels like walking a high wire beam, but the beam becomes wider the more coping skills I have and I feel am much less less likely to fall off the beam the more I use them.
