Karen Peacock

About the artist: 

Karen Peacock is a board-certified art therapist in private practice in Memphis, TN. "Using art to express my experiences provides a unique perspective, often bringing equilibrium to emotions that may be hard to express verbally."

About the artwork:

"After giving birth to my son, I reached for art materials to express the complexity of emotions I was experiencing. This image, created with crayons and ink pen, depicts the contrasting feelings of physical emptiness and emotional fullness, as well as feelings of being physically scarred and emotionally loved."
