"My name is Ella and I have bipolar, PTSD and anxiety. I sketched these pieces during a manic episode, in which I didn't sleep for 9 days straight. I hadn't picked up a pencil in 5 years; when I attended secondary school. I suddenly came to the realisation that I could exhibit what I was feeling inside my head, onto paper. I feel this thoroughly helped me to connect to those around me, to give them some insight into what I deal with, but hopefully something that they could also relate to."
