Chris Dunn Living with Addition and Mental illness is not easy, having a healthy outlet is a good way to cope with life's obstacles. Creating artwork has helped to keep me sane in a stormy world. I like to use bright colors to convey happiness to the viewer. My artwork has evolved over the years, from abstract acrylics on canvas to creating colorful digital abstract paintings made with photos of real objects. And I'm constantly trying to create new and exciting color combinations all the time.
