Anxiety in Artwork

By. Amanda Acevedo

My name is Amanda Acevedo, I am 22. I normally draw very colorful and pretty illustrations for women empowerment and self love. But not everything is beautiful behind the scenes and I think I am ready to show the dark as much as the light. I have been finding ways to cope with my anxiety for 8 years now. I have been quiet for too long. But I have a story and I am ready to share. These pieces are apart of a series based on my journey and allows my followers to see why goes on in the mind of the face that smiles. It is okay to be vulnerable and it is okay to speak up. I think for all the young girls and women who are experiencing the same.. I hope you find a voice in me and will allow yourself to get up and shine. Everyone should be allowed to tell their story and I am telling mine.
