To send light into the darkness of men's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.

Robert Schumann

Carin Fausett

Growing up I had hearing aids, and thick glasses. Constantly I would miss out or misunderstand.  There was all this color and movement happening around me and I didn't know how to be a part of it.  So I kept my head down and read a lot, never understanding the jokes or whispers.  My life existed on the outside looking in, until I discovered art.

Now as an adult I see the same pattern, in a different setting, with my sons. They have experienced addiction and feelings of immense isolation. This pattern of isolation repeats for so many reasons: abuse, grief, hopelessness, failure, and depression.

Currently I am using my art to communicate about these widespread challenges. Remember the opposite of addiction is not sobriety but connection. I encourage you to fight addiction, habits of fear, and isolation. Connect and find your wings, you have had them all along.
