Artwork by Kristen Oles

My name is Kristen Oles and have dealt with the struggles of dealing with Mental Health (Bipolar, anxiety) for over 27 years. One thing that has been extremely therapeutic from the beginning is making art.  It’s very easy to start things, but sometimes it’s extremely difficult to finish and feel self-satisfied.  There has been many times in my life, I have never been able to finish things and I’m very grateful the past few years to be starting and finishing things.
