I blog and present my art under the pseudonym Jane Ji because of the stigma I face over my mental illness. I have lived experience with Depression and Anxiety. I was diagnosed in 2013 and I work very hard to be well. I have a supportive family and a growing community of friends that help me to manage as well as I do. My goal is to advocate for those with mental illness through Social Media and Art and to end stigma. I have a passion for art. I am an accomplished Fashion Designer, Textile Designer, Teacher and Artist. My favorite mediums are painting and drawing still life. I love the use of color. Connect with me and let’s support each other on this journey.
