058 - Sandy Chiu - BUDDY'S DREAM

058 - Sandy Chiu - BUDDY'S DREAM


Acrylic and acrylic gouache on board. In "Buddy’s Dream", my dog Buddy transformed into a camper van, and her favourite toys were brought to life. This artwork not only draws inspiration from my wedding day but also from how my husband and I first met in Australia.

I have experienced anxiety and depression since I was a teenager. It has been the lowest I have ever been in the past few years. With help and support, I am gradually feeling more like myself, and glad to find art again through all of this. It is still an ongoing battle. Mental health struggles are not always obvious, that’s why having a charity like Samaritans is so important.
