I was in school for a long time. First, at Queen’s University where I earned a Life Science degree. Later, I tried to finish a graduate degree at a University outside of Ontario. But mental illness interrupted my plans. I withdrew from the University because I became severely sick, schizophrenic, and also because I eventually lost interest in biomedical research. Art became my new love. I am now an aspiring artist/photographer. Writing is another art form that I enjoy doing. This is my journey of recovery from mental illness, and into the world of creativity.
