Scars help define who you are, not only do they show what you been through on the surface, they show what you survived on the inside. Don't let your scars break you, instead let them be apart of what makes you. So embrace it because they've improved you. With every scar comes a lesson, they make you truly appreciate life and count your blessings. When you see your scars that means you're still here. So celebrate life and middle finger the fear because you're more beautiful than ever my dear.

“While I was in the process of getting skin graft surgery to replace the skin I had lost, I was looking at a lot of skin charts. You’d be surprised, but the colors of skin underneath—pinks, purples, whites…are very beautiful.”
“Thinking upon the notion of the many layers of scarring that occurs and of new skin mending…I was struck with the idea of taking what our skin looks like within those layers and using it as symbol of hidden emotions and true self inside us all. Since I will be painting on skin itself, I thought it would be beautiful to recreate those layers of skin you do not see. The cells inside those different layers. Layers of masks, pain, scars, and healing.”
