Help Me Remember Image

Help Me Remember portrays a young girl unsure of what is ahead. I recall the insecurities I felt at this age and how it affected my self-esteem. I longed for the stability of childhood when life was safe and predictable. The never-ending changes of adolescence left me vulnerable to depression. In constructing this painting, I placed the figure in a fetal position, protecting herself from the unseen trials ahead. Her self-embrace is an attempt of reassurance during this time of uncertainty.

Help us remember the love, protection and encouragement adolescents need from us.
