Carissa Belham has recently added published author to the impressive list of feathers in her cap, including artist and business owner of Risso Creative. Carissa’s artistic style varies from custom abstract works to one-off drawings and paintings for screen printing onto t-shirts. She is a versatile artist who says art helps her maintain balance, wellbeing and clarity in her life.

Carissa lives with Bipolar disorder and believes in the healing power of art in helping manage mental illness – in fact, the tagline for Risso Creative is ‘enhancing wellbeing by creativity’.

Carissa has recently fulfilled a life dream by relocating to the Sunshine Coast, where she is working part-time while managing her arts organisation. Her memoir, ‘A Girl With a Mexican Hat, One Shoe and a Boogie Board’, will be released in 2022.


"This artwork is all about the positive side of mental health. It focuses on recovery that follows serious bouts of mental illness; the period of clarity, wellbeing, peace and positivity that occurs once you’ve come through a dark time. This artwork is about being grounded, and I had a clear, concise plan for this work before I began. The soft tones of the painting evoke feelings of calmness and contentment."
