Artwork that inspires joy

Hello there, I am Krista Carpenter.  I am an epoxy resin artist with a bright, sunny style. 

I only began working with resin four years ago.  I had lost my job, lost the love of my life, and I was living in a place that I did not enjoy.  Those things, in conjunction with a severe Depression that I had been fighting for the previous ten years, is what made me decide to attempt suicide.  However, five days later, I woke up on a respirator in the hospital, still alive.  I immediately began to plot my next attempt.  Before I could carry out the act, though, I asked myself:  What is the last thing I would like to do on this earth?

My answer was to try some artwork using epoxy resin.   I promptly ordered resin and watched a few tutorials online.  To my surprise, my very first project came out beautifully!  I felt a sense of joy and pride that I had never experienced before.  Working with Epoxy Resin has transformed my life.  I get into a state of flow, where my negativity is not welcome.  I use vibrant colors, and other media that inspires happiness.  I experiment and play like a child….My artwork saved my life, and I hope that it inspires joy and happiness in others.  Most of all, I hope that it encourages people not to give up….that mental illness is not a life sentence.  That you too, can heal and find joy.
