ART AND MENTAL ILLNESS NO. 3: GEORGIA O’KEEFE

Georgia O’Keefe is a badass.

You might know her for her vaginal flowers or her impressionistic landscapes. But, did you know she suffered from depression and anxiety?

O’Keefe was a badass American female artist. One of the first. She trailblazer despite a controlling husband and all the traumatic chaos that comes from a scary marriage.

O’Keefe and her paintings combined are a gorgeous example of resilience.

Create, create, create, because you can. Your calling is not random. I get emotional imagining O’Keefe as a young woman, alone with her overwhelming sorrow and her doubt. But, she did it. And the result is magical beauty.
