I’m Michaela Griego

I’m an artist and designer from Arizona.

My work focuses on my experiences with stigma that surrounds disorders such as Bipolar Disorder and Personality Disorders. I work to combine something that brings me joy — flowers — with something that weighs me down — my mental health. The flowers have meanings that relate to each of the symptoms represented in my paintings. I embroider on them to combine my love for embroidery with my love for painting.

Drawing from personal experiences, I try to capture those effects of living with misunderstood mental illnesses. Breaking down the series into each symptom rather than a generalized piece that attempts to encompass the entire disorder, I capture the entire disorder from my perspective to open the eyes of those who do not understand them.
