I’ll always be here for you is a body of work that stemmed from my struggle with self-harm. Making this work gave me an outlet to express myself in a way I did not have a language for.

The work is made into an artist book to convey the emotions and feelings of a person in distress through images and textiles. It highlights the vicious cycle of self-harm (a cycle that is hard to break out of) as well as the psychological aspects of it that cause people to voluntarily hurt themselves.

I’ll always be here for you allow viewers to put themselves in the mental state of those that go through self-harm.
