\We feel we are ugly, more often then we care to admit. However, our bodies are something to celebrate, not degrade. We are individuals, our differences are what make us valuable to the world and ourselves. Vale Abbott has played throughout Ontario, in Toronto and Barrie, with her sister and now has a solo project called Cold Tea. Vale is now opening up about struggles with body image and identity.

Please read.

Thank you for agreeing to be interviewed. I prefer to use email than social media so that the virtual content still remains the property of the artist. After the interview, I will send you the finished written piece to check before it becomes live. Once you have agreed for the piece to go live, then it becomes my property, but you can still use it for whatever you want.  

The interview will be a conversation on your experience as a person and how you as an individual celebrates your identity though art. It is your time to talk about how mental health and other differences you may have impact your art and the work you do for your fans and/or friends. I will guide you through the conversation to whatever extent you want. This is about your world not mine and there are no wrong answers.

Maybe you do not need all the answers. Depression can make it seem like you are never good enough, however, you are good enough to keep asking the questions that make life worth living. I have talked with Daniel Hendley, a local artist living with depression, who has a diploma in photography. We talked about how you cannot know everything about what you are going to do with your life, and how that is OK. Also, we talked about how humour can be a way of realizing which people are friends that are with you, not against you.
