"I named this piece 'The Lantern' because the beach grounds me and gives me light that has helped me through the hurdles of life."
Mark Gibson has had a long journey living with ASD, ADHD, anxiety, depression and, following a motorcycle accident, complex PTSD.
He finds going for walks along the beach to be a grounding and gratifying experience; feeling the sand on the soles of his feet, closing his eyes and listening to the sound of the ocean.
