Meet The Artists:

Emma Morrissey BA – Emma is a business owner from Southampton & is very pleased to debut her latest collection of original paintings & prints, the collection is a direct representatin of her struggles with Anxiety over the years, with each piece demonstrating the various stages that her Anxiety would take.

“These pieces are my representation of what each stage of one of my Pnic Attacks looks like if it was to have an image linked to it, the colours used, the technique & the style of the work is all relevant to the subject & has been a very personal creative journey in creating these pieces, I hope that these pieces will give others who are struggling, a positive outlook on what can be created out of a difficult situation” Emma Morrissey 2017′

Emma has chosen Mental Health charity ‘MIND’ she will be giving a percentage of any sales to Solent Mind.

 

David Vane:

David Vane is better known as founder/director of SBGN, a company that has helped over 200 people to start their businesses. David says that he has not considered himself an artist but new techniques and technology have enabled him to express his view of the environment in different ways. David was moved to contact The Alzheimer’s Society after hearing several programmes on the radio about the struggles of carers and people who have dementia and he wanted to find a practical way to support research.

Please come along & show your support for local Artists & remember, any Art sles on the day will be helping to raise funds for charity.

Anxious Over Art!? – Mental Health & Creativity, are they paired?

So, we all know that some of the greatest Artists of our time suffered for their Art? Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch & Toulouse Lautrec all had their demons, so begs the question, are all creative people bound with such troubles?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Perhaps we could debate that today’s Artists, Actors & Performers find their craft a way to express their troubles, through dance pieces, creating a masterpiece, or throwing themselves into a demanding acting role? With Mental Health so more prominant on peoples minds than ever before, are we doing enough to keep out mental wellness at it’s best? Should non-creative people take up a craft or hobby? As a sufferer of Anxiety, i know firsthand the benefits that Art & creative expression can have, but don’t just take my word for it, their are many studies on it.

Many studies have shown that in the past few years, Art Therapy has become a great release for many Mental Health sufferers & the craze of Mindfulness Drawing has helped many career focused adults keep their mental helath in check as well as helping to battle Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Stress & many other conditions including Bi Polar Disorder, Schizophrenia & many others, with our lives becoming more demanding with long work hours, juggling home, social & work lives &the fear of exams now worrying younger minds, it is maybe about time we all gave ourselves a break? Check out the articles below for more information.
