Over my years of trying to get well and be happy, I have generated a great deal of "recovery art" to help me work through difficult feelings and experiences. Sometimes these pictures help other people, because art is a language that supercedes words.
Please browse through the work and choose to explore whatever speaks to you... Sometimes the artwork expresses triggering issues, so I have posted trigger warnings where it seems appropriate.
