Racquel is an artist from San Francisco, California who had not taken any formal training in the field of art. She started drawing last July 2011 to help her cope with depression due to PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). She suffered from childhood abuse.
She realized that art brought her peace of mind, giving her relief from the memory of the past which continually haunted her. She found an avenue to tell her story – she was able to express her sadness and pain on paper, not by writing but by producing amazing works.
