Art was always the only thing that could get Latoya’s full attention. From a young age she has suffered from depression fought with her thoughts and feelings daily. Art saved her and thanks to art, she found a way to express her feelings. Communicating with words was never a competence Latoya possessed, rather she shows her feelings through artwork.
Latoya wants to raise awareness of DEPRESSION through her artworks. Depression can have various causes. Often enough people who do not suffer from depression cannot understand a depressed person. Sometimes such a person’s life can seem beautiful from the outside. Such a person should have no reason to be depressed according to society. In most cases, people take a depressed person seriously when it is too late. I have known many young people who have taken their lives. If the people in their lives treated their depression as a serious problem, some of them may still be here.
