Artworks are first available for purchase by sponsors and dignitaries before being available in person at the Exhibition in Brisbane. Unsold artworks can also be purchased online following the event.
"Our true feelings come out when we are on our own or in trusted company.
Being able to remove our mask isn’t easy. Vulnerability is courageous. Vulnerability only survives with a listening ear, with someone who doesn’t necessarily say a word.
So just be here. Be. Your presence is all that's needed. Every tear is another step closer to healing."
Blooms is a very new artist, playing with charcoal and digital media. She has experienced major depression and anxiety, along with either bipolar type two or complex PTSD - she has been told these last two are similar in presentation.
Blooms' recovery is supported through art classes with Isabella Allis, cycling and trail running. Being in nature and maintaining social connections keeps her well.
Blooms wishes everyone all the very best on their own journey.
