Please say a warm Earth Day hello to first-time contributor Jasmine Soto, a Fashion Designer from New York living with Bipolar Disorder. Jasmine is also a multimedia artist who loves photography, collage and watercolor. When she feels low, she tries to motivate herself to get up and out by taking her camera on a healing journey. She tries to focus on her surroundings and capture the moment. She has found that being in nature uplifts her. Jasmine is a member of the non-profit Fountain Gallery where she is a volunteer and a participating artist.
About the photo: “In springtime all is made new. These are the new blossoms at Astoria Park in Queens. This photo makes me feel like the Earth is singing a new song. After a long winter the spring season brings light and color which certainly help with mood.”
