She lied down and cried, like it'd be the last time she'll get to vent out. "Haha. I know right." How she agreed to what a good day it was like a few hours ago. She was a pro. She could act just like what's needed and nobody would be hinted of what's killing her. Except her. She knew. She couldn't just keep her mind off it. It was feeding off her. Every second. But nothing of this was new. This has been her life. She felt coerced to keep everything up in her brain like it's not meant to be known. Nobody knew her. She didnt want anybody to. For how everybody saw her, she had everything she'd need to be happy and alive. She had education, enough money, enough space and enough intellect. She was disliked for being this dumb and arrogant to take her privileges for granted. Beneath her layers, there was this person, which didn't just exist. It'd live on dreams, covered, in silence. She wasn't any girl next door. Back then, she'd have her dreams in her head and goals on her tongue. But she lost it. That voice, perhaps. Quite a while ago. She was just this blurred person somewhere in
the background. She knew this wasn't her place. It was maybe the best for her to leave. It took her years, to find what she wanted. Whatever that took her in abundance.She was searching for it.
Waiting for it, from a long, a really long time. A time she can't even remember. And now, she might just have it. She got a clue. A lead. "Where is she" "She didnt even leave a note." Nobody could realise, she was gone, way before she left. If only anyone cared enough to know, what place that was, that could set her soul on
fire, she wouldn't be called 'lost'.

Maybe I should decrease the number of animal drawings. I am not the best at drawing people, but I tried @riverphoenix_ 🕊

Artist: Stefanie Thiele
Media: Acrylic and spray paint on canvas
When asked what she hopes people get out of viewing her work, Thiele said, “...my work aims to achieve two things: Creating it, it helps me understand, memorize, learn, appreciate and grow. And that is exactly what I hope it does for the people who see my art – I wish for it to be a tool/a space to rediscover themselves.”
This artwork is a piece commissioned by @unpolishedjourney for a calendar project. The theme was “Transformation”, but artists were encouraged to create anything they wanted. The project is a collaboration with various artists that address mental health issues through their work.
Curator’s note: This was my first attempt at doing multiple posts on a single artist (since the very first posts about Cristóbal Balenciaga), in part because I was personally moved by Stefanie Thiele’s journey, her battle with anxiety and how art has been so instrumental in helping her not just cope, but thrive. In some ways, this is my story and the story of so many others than find solace, release and joy through artistic expression. It’s like coming home- a safe place where you’re led to feel free, feel your best. The second factor was that doing multiple posts, or having an artist spotlight week is a way to delve deeper into the portfolio and story of an artist. I am always fascinated about the person, the background, the circumstances that give rise to a creation. With every artist I’m exploring, I want to present their world and their vision as purely and wholly as it was revealed to me. I’ve been in my own head a lot lately, thinking and overthinking, so it’s been a little hiatus. It’s funny, because I never thought I’d give my personal opinion on an artwork, but here we are. Some things have changed over the past few weeks, and I’m just going where the tide takes me. Hopefully you will all like where we’re going with this. As always, I’m so happy to have each and every one of you along for the ride. Thank you for your support, it means the world to me.
Seems today was a good day for a spur of the moment furniture rearrangement in the studio. Need to refine it a bit (and try painting in the corner to see if I like it). This room gets so much light and is so cozy when it’s sunny (it was snowing a little bit ago!). 🌨
What are you up to this weekend?
