This image is inspired by the self-inflicted injuries, both emotional and physical, that take place during the growing process.


As a teenager and young adult I was often my own worst enemy, always cutting myself down and destroying my self image with assumptions of how others viewed me. One day, I decided I no longer cared. I bandaged the wounds I had been pouring salt into and made a promise to always be true to myself. I made it a point to grow.


From my "Growth" series. April 2013.
