Representations of Self: A Series by Lilly Yohe

Lilliana Yohe, Student Writer

This pencil drawing represents my identity as I see it. With my name being Lilly,  I have always felt a connection to  lilies. 
During my stay at a mental facility, I developed the habit of blaming myself for everything. An image I took during this time represents this feeling for me, so I used it as a form of stress relief to draw it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This multi-media piece was created when I was stressed and worn out. I felt like I was being dragged through my day and it was very hard for me to stay positive. This was used as a visual representation of my being exhausted.

 

This piece represents my experience depression- the causes, effects, and thoughts that come with it are featured in some way.
