Limitless, an art collection by Maya Ann, emerges from a dark time in her life. While dealing with traumatic and painful experiences in her family, Maya Ann was diagnosed with Erythromelalgia, a rare vascular pain disorder triggered by stressful events. To cope, she used her voice and vision to bring into the world “Limitless” - her first ever collection and a testament to the cathartic power of creation and art.
