Photo taken by contributor Bipolar On Fire, a woman in her 40’s who lives and works in Boulder, Colorado. She has Bipolar Disorder and Depression, as well as Fibromyalgia. It is a great struggle for her to work full-time and has been for a while. She works as a System Administrator, but will hopefully be leaving the corporate world soon and supporting herself through her art.

Her aim in life is to create beauty and bring joy to the lives of others through her creations and words.
