Artist Statement

My art piece shows a woman who is wearing headphones tuning out all of the hurtful words that are surrounding her. I made this to show people to be confident and not to listen to the hurtful things others say. I sketched this on a sheet of paper, then took a picture and traced it digitally. Then I added details and the words, and colored the whole piece. This artwork represents the way we reject negativity and feel confident in ourselves no matter what people say about us. No matter how mean people are, you can always find the good, and create your own happiness.
