“I decided to push myself to paint what I felt. It was so hard to put these feelings on the canvas as with every stroke of the paint brush I was going through my emotions inside. But each new painting was a new journey I had to take.”

Joanne paints colourful and powerful works that focus on emotion and self awareness. Having lived with depression most of her life, Joanne’s works are mainly self-portraits, symbolising the struggles of mental illness. She uses painting as therapy and hopes her art can provide reassurance for others experiencing the same difficulties.

“It’s the everyday stuff I go through that I put on paper,” Joanne said.

“A lot of my work is basically to make people feel more comfortable with their mental illness, to realise that they’re not alone.”
