Interview (part of): Have you ever used art as a way to heal or cope with difficult emotions? If so, could you share how it helped you? “Art has been a powerful tool for me in handling tough emotions. There have been times when I've channeled my feelings—be it stress, sadness, or even confusion—into my art. Creating allowed me to express those emotions in a way that words often couldn't capture. It's like art became this safe space where I could unload what I was feeling, whether through colors, forms, or the overall mood of the piece. Working on art during challenging times became a kind of therapy, giving me a way to process what I was going through." - pao.ijwbaa
