"Being a youth in this era is hard. Having travelled this journey with my own children, the pressure is enormous.
Imagine if you could just float away from all the pressures and live freely for a day - no demands, no judgement, no peer pressure, free to be yourself.
Mental health statistics in the youth sector are rising every day. A moment of freedom would be a wonderful thing for anybody feeling overwhelmed with the pressure of life."
Boliboldoriginal has been a creative for over 40 years. After raising her three children solo, she decided that she needed to be in the creative world full-time.
Boliboldoriginal has developed a love of mixed media collage and using recycled products. She finds a lot of her inspiration comes from Mother Earth and nature, which produces the most amazing colour palette for everyone to admire.
Being creative helps soothe and relax Boliboldoriginal, as well as release happy vibes to keep her out of those dark places. Art is her journey, now more so than ever.
