An art exhibition is being held in Weston this month showcasing the highs and lows of mental health.

Andrew Heath’s work is on display at The Blakehay Theatre’s coffee shop in Wadham Street and will run until January 9.

Andrew, from Bridgwater, took up painting to help conquer depression and says he hopes his work can help inspire others.

He added: “Painting helps me get my anger and frustrations of this fast-moving world we live in, out.

“It’s helped a lot and each of my pictures tells a story of my feelings.

“My art is canvas-based but with an array of mixed media such as oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal pencil.

“I hope that people who view them will find comfort in the fact that my whole being is in each painting.

“It is an honour to be asked to exhibit at The Blakehay Theatre.”
