“It's a passion. It's a therapy,” the Tsawwassen artist says of her artwork, noting that she likes colour and originality.

Her sale, titled Inkstains, will include about 60 different prints.

She'll also have a book, which she describes as a “new age journal.”

The book entitled Azeem’s Destiny, is based upon Alex Tamir, a psychiatric nurse at Surrey Memorial Hospital, Turin describes in the books introduction.

“He has worked there for at least eight years helping mental patients recover,” Turin said, adding that he has helped her in her journey through some mental health issues. “I have dedicated this book firstly to Azeem and my children, Jeffrey and Jennifer. Then to the psychiatrists who use chemical medications as a last resort to psychotherapy. To all physicians and surgeons and to all the students in psychology and psychiatry.”
She also pays tribute to the Delta police and Delta fire department for their support over the years.

Proceeds from the sale of her art and book will go towards community groups that provide mental health support, she notes.
