Normalizing Emotions


HELLO BEAUTIES!!! I'm an illustrator and all round emotional roller-coaster. My work explores what goes on behind closed doors, from obsessive texting, to selfies, to crying. My aim is to break down the stigmas attached to mental health, being "over emotional", "too sensitive", "a hurricane", and being open about insecurities. 

I want to let whoever relates to my work know that they are not alone in whatever they are going through. I want to normalize emotions. I want to give the confidence to feel. I want to breakdown the shame an embarrassment that comes with all of this. WE ARE HUMAN! WE FEEL! WE LOVE! WE CRY! AND WE REPEAT THAT ALL OVER!
