Artist's description:

Artist, Jane Ruggiero, 45, has battled Bipolar Disorder since the age of 12, using her powerful mainly female portraits to explore the challenges she, and the one in 50 Australians living with Bipolar, have to manage.

Strongly influenced by the life story of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, who suffered terrible injuries in a tram accident that left her in permanent pain from the age of 18, Ruggiero’s work explores the inexplicable ability of humanity to deal with suffering through the beauty of the paint brush which inspires colour, hope and imagination.
