My wife and I had the pleasure of getting to create a mural for this local eatery, right in the heart of Avondale. For Birmingham natives, this space is the old Bottletree venue. That alone made it dear to our hearts as memories of performing and listening to our favorite musicians there filled our minds as we worked.

This illustration depicts the reconciling of faith while living with mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder. The right hand side of the image signifies Prayer, and the left represents the feelings of lack of control one experiences with mental health issues. This leads to a state of feeling fractured by these two conflicting postures. The ribbon flows into and out of the figure, as the gospel can be a source of renewal and release for the anxiety often felt in dealing with mental health issues.
Many thanks to Charlotte Donlon for her accompanying article and brave testimony to her own struggle with faith and it’s place in her personal struggles with mental health issues. It was a great pleasure getting to contribute to this important topic and help open up discussions on how the Church can address these issues.
When I can muster up the patience, I have done some commissioned portraiture. These drawings are all either pencil or Conte (an artist’s chalk). Yes, they are drawings!
