"Anxietea" Mental Health Tea Paintings
Painting, and drinking a hot cup of tea, are two methods by which an anxious mind can be brought back from moments of compulsive, negative thinking. Anxietea is a series combining these two popular means of grounding our thoughts in the present.
"The used tea bags unfold into tiny canvases on which I can paint. Those moments of anxiety become contained within the four small borders of those very techniques that help to overcome them. This is the series that started my journey into painting a better image of mental illness." - Billy Hebb
