a non-profit foundation whose mission is to help people dealing with the challenges of mental illness. From depression and anxiety to obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD),
Peace Love helps those afflicted by some form of mental illness to create peace of mind through art
and storytelling. “I’ve suffered from OCD and anxiety since I was in college. It took a while before someone suggested I try painting to help me deal with it. So I did” said Sparr. “Despite having no artistic training,
painting made me feel better.
