The Diva, 2019, 18 x 24, acrylic on paper

In April, several of the Left-Hand works will be exhibited in a show called Figments at ShockBoxx Gallery in Hermosa Beach.

Figments is a group art show where artists reflect on the relationship with one’s self and topics of mental health, including disorders like anxiety disorder, depression and body dysmorphia. We invite artists to explore both the causation and effects of mental health issues and instability through visual art and writing.

With figments, we aim to destigmatize mental health issues, as well as promote personal growth, a healthy relationship with one’s self, and a positive, supportive community.
