This drawing is a reminder that we all go through periods of our lives where we've had to rise up through the dirt and muddy water in order to make it to the sunlight.
That we’ve all had these phases and collectively felt the ‘growing pains’ at some point during our lives.
Gifting us the ability to feel empathy when we recognise that same journey within others. An empathy that helps us understand on a fundamental level that we are all one… That what you feel, I feel and when one of us rises up we all collectively rise with them. With that knowledge water the people around you with love, kindness and support.. the essential nutrients needed to grow together as a collective and help each other bloom.
I created this drawing for ‘Jessica’s tree’ a Television web series on mental health. I’ll be donating 50% of the profits of this print to ‘Voices of Hope’ a mental health charity I work with that are dedicated to changing/saving lives of those battling with any kind of mental illness.
