Why do I draw
I draw to see myself. I look at my personality and see the different ways that others see me through my art. Especially my faces that I draw. They are automatic paintings. I used to draw and paint beings from other worlds. Now they are becoming more human like. The mental illness still shows through on the work. Often that is what the viewer finds disturbing about them. The automatic drawings that I do are very different from the ones I would do at a life drawing session. It is more about letting my hand move freely creating the image. Many of the faces are different. I do see myself in them. It is a measure of how much I have healed.
