My name is Emily Harrington and I am the goldfish painter. I am thirty years old and have lived with bipolar for eleven years. It takes a lot of work to stay alive with a mental illness. I’ve had to build up resources to help me survive. Painting is one of my resources, and I built this site to share my paintings, my hard-won coping skills, and my stories with the world in the hope that I might make someone (maybe you) feel less alone.
