I had a concussion! Now I draw!
My name is Angela C. I work as a camera assistant in the glamourous film industry. A year ago I suffered a concussion at work. I can’t say I will ever be back to normal but its left me leading a fairly different and interesting life.
I have found ‘art’ at the right time in my life. I was alway creative and like to make earrings and bracelets but now I am able to express depression, anxiety and sadness through painting on plates and canvases.
It has been about 6 months since the my first drawing and I have created 186 pieces. I am thankful to have this newfound ‘gift’ but I would trade it all in just to feel back to normal for a day.
Please enjoy the site and my galleries.
My recent pieces:
I have had the opportunity to be in a gallery in Toronto and won 1st place amongst thirty other talented artists. At the same gallery I had the opportunity to speak to small groups twice about mental illness and my concussion. I had the chance to meet many newly concussed people as well as supporters.
I would love any other opportunity to speak out on mental illness and speak to students at school.
I was asked by the Brain Injury Association of Canada to write an article for their paper for the October issues, “Mental Health Awareness Month” so i am excited to wait to see it.
Also I wrote an article for “Hospital News” the leading newspaper in hospitals about Mental illness and concussion and the Healthcare System. I wrote about things that I needed to happen after my concussion, things that need to be changed during all this ‘illness.’ The lack of support in the system to those who are concussed.
