I’ve been bullied all my life, been called so many things, that I decided to express myself through something that has always been a huge part of my life: art. So this piece of work came from the idea that if you get bullied so much; if you get called something so frequently; when you look in the mirror you no longer see yourself, you see what people have been calling you. That’s the most awful part about bullies, it’s that they actually have the power to make you feel like you ARE ugly, or fat, or a freak. What I want to happen, is for people to be able to take this image that they have of themselves, and like a mask, just take it off.
