Hi, my name is Xanthe Wyse and I have been sharing some of my journey with bipolar 1 disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder.
I show you some of the art I have put up on my wall. All my art is about transforming pain into colour and they all tell stories. They all help inspire my writing. My most challenging goals is to complete 2 novels. The first, Pet Purpose is 80% complete and the sequel, Soar Purpose is in the development stage.
Having a sense of meaning and purpose has helped keep me going. I find it particularly therapeutic to make something out of re-purposed materials. Even if it’s putting symbolic objects in bottles I bought from the op shop.
All my art was created by listening to music – whatever came to mind – on a loop. Then I changed the tune.
