Carey Davies' artwork ‘A Portrait of Wellness II’ is featured on the Art Series set for 2017.

“Having art helps me to feel normal when my world turns upside down due to my downs from depression. I find the help it does is wonderful. My life since not working has been hard - all the mixing with others stopped. I now spend more time paiting. I do like to help others when I can."
