About IllusiveArtworks

Sales 107
On Etsy since 2014

Paint, write and draw every moment that I can, turning my emotions and experiences into unique artwork.

Art has been a part of my life for years as a tool for expressing myself, however, I was always an inconsistent creator as I believed I was never "good enough". In January 2019, I began a slow process of learning not to think of the outcome or end result of a painting before I'm there. I started planning and sketching less, and started experimenting more.
What I found was an entirely different way to experience and enjoy art. As I became more honest in my artwork and found it more and more powerful for my own self-expression and mental wellbeing, I started to share my work with others who may struggle with their own mental health concerns or struggle to see how wonderful imperfection and experimentation are. And thus, Illusive Artworks was born.
The name is inspired by the illusory nature of mental illness - its uncanny ability to change a person's perception of reality, just like an illusion.
Illusive Artworks exists to help others who struggle sometimes realise they are not alone - and that mental healthcare is vital whether you have a mental illness or not. This is why a portion of all sales are donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association.
