"This piece represents Acceptance, Belonging and Connection, understanding that we all have something special inside.
I experimented with a new artistic style with this piece, using a syringe to inject acrylic paint onto the canvas. We are not defined by dark moments; we all bring colour and something special into every room we enter."
