I would honestly love to read more about you. Not only for personal interest, but also for my photography essays. Your work is amazing and highly intriguing to me. I would love to write about you and how you have influenced some of my work and how you can influence others. You're a very intriguing lady (: .
I've met people in the past that don't want to know anything about mental illness and refuse to face it. I was just curious if it was a common thing, or if the fact that it was joined to my art would make it something worth reading.
The reason I like your art is for your mental illness. I know that sounds like an odd thing to say, but it puts meaning to your work. A lot of people pretty much just do random work that has little bearing on reality, it just seems so hollow to me. Your art, and others like it, has real meaning, it has something to it. Yours is one of the few galleries that I keep coming back to, and I never get tired of seeing your work. The discussion of what's behind it makes it all the more meaningful to me, and it makes you as a person more real, and not just another name and a face on the internet. I feel like it also helps those of us who have mental illness because reading about someone else's experience in their words makes us feel like we're not alone, or at least it helps me. . Also, sorry for taking so damn long to respond to everything. *a little over two months* I've been having problems with depression and crappy meds for a while, but my head feels half way clear for the first time in a while, so I'm using it while I can. I haven't given up on that one huge message, my computer just ate my response two or three times. T.T And lastly, I'm glad you finally fixed your camera!
Thanks for taking the time to write me something so in depth!
I'm glad you can see the meaning behind my photos, a lot of people have kind of snubbed me for it, or have just told me I'm unprofessional and weird. I really really hope I can help people to see the benefits of extra therapies like art (or music or dance etc!).
I'm sorry you've been feeling so low, meds take a while to sink in don't they, and the worry that they may not even work. Tough time, very very tough. I hope your head continues to stay clear - perhaps try to work out what it is that's helping you to keep better?
No problem, really. And yes camera is fixed for now but it is desperately trying to break and refuses to take photos sometimes! Very annoying!
