Shawn Augustson, a self taught artist living in the United States began doing art as therapy. He joined the military after 9/11 where he served with the US Army in combat operations in Iraq from 2004 to 2006. Upon returning home from the war, he was diagnosed with PTSD, Anxiety and Major Depressive Disorder and injuries to his lower back.
With the encouragement of an art therapist during one of his hospital stays he began using art as a therapy tool to help him cope with the obtrusive thoughts and emotions he was experiencing. Shawn believes his work is best described as Post Traumatic Expression™
