Lexi Stroud: I am currently attending Aims to receive my associate’s degree in psychology. Mental health is something that is extremely important to me. I have always turned to art as a way to express the way I felt. I think that art is such a beautiful way to express things that are harder to say with words. My two favorite art mediums are alcohol markers/ ink pen and acrylic paint. I really love acrylic paint because it feels freer and easier to go with the flow. Painting has always just been a little more fun. It doesn’t feel as stressful as some. I began using pen and alcohol markers to mimic various tattoo styles, and at some point, I would love to dip my hand into that realm of art.
