Everyone can see my scars, but no one can see my pain.

Artist Statement

I created this artwork to that words can hurt someone. Text messages that insult or lash out at someone can create self-doubt. Teenagers are very susceptible to listen, believe and allow these type of messages to deteriorate their self worth. Reach out and help your friends; make sure they know you care.

 

If you need to reach out, text 741741 from anywhere in the USA to text with a trained Crisis Counselor or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
