"I was listening to ABC Jazz and created this watercolour artwork. I traced everyday kitchen items with black pigment liner. Through exploring the effects of watercolour, I enjoyed the freedom of expression."
Leanne has lived experience of depression and anxiety, having made a suicide attempt five years ago and spent time in a psychiatric ward. After a diagnosis of clinical depression and PTSD involving years of back-to-back psychiatrist and psychologist visits, she started art therapy.
Over the past three years, Leanne has developed a strong interest in all art mediums, from drawing and painting to clay and wire sculpture. As this is her first time entering an exhibition, Leanne used this opportunity to merge her newfound enjoyment of creating art with her rediscovered love of music.
