Visual Arts:

Creating art and writing aided me in recovery from mental illness. It’s a passion to be an artist but also fulfilling to share my art. Be it a beautiful flower, a desolate building, people interacting or an abstraction of an idea, I like to communicate joy, angst, beauty, humour, painting from the heart. My writing includes a memoir, My Schizophrenic Life: The Road to Recovery from Mental Illness, Chop Shtick, a fictional novel about artists, and From New York to Vancouver: Stories on the Fly.
