    There are a number of online art groups where you can participate (or not participate) as much as you wish and that may be a way forward for your daughter because it's such a supportive, encouraging environment.

    I don't really follow any groups that follow the style of what you have posted, but there must be some somewhere (most of my interest is with sketching).

    A lot of online art-based organisations have great communities ( Sketchbook Skool, Skillshare, Urban Sketchers ).

    It saddens me that a 20 year-old has anxiety. I hope she finds a way forward. Art can be a route.

    these two are very good indeed - they both say 'finished art' to me; they are great compositions, no un-necessary content, somthing you could put on a t-shirt or hang on a wall and enjoy looking at

    art can be very personal and difficult to discuss with others if you are not sure they will understand where you are commimg from...

    The second one is Calluna (Latin for Heather, my daughter's name). Calluna has been with us for as long as she's been drawing. Other characters come and go, but Calluna seems to be a permanent feature and is quite likely her alto ego.

    Here's Calluna in 2014
