Dark Eagle

Jennie Bethel's avatar Jennie Bethel

I am 26 years old and reside in Virginia. I have Bi-polar Disorder and have been doing art for three years. I wasn't born with Bi-polar disorder. I was created through Darkness. Darkness is my fathers last name symbolically. His last name is Blake which means darkness. He is also a child molester. I never wanted to be an artist. My mom told me I shouldn't even mention the symbolism of my art. My mom never married my dad and it is why I feel better about screaming about my past. I don't want to hurt people and when I bring up my past most people tend to avoid me or not look at my artwork and that hurts me more. Partly because I don't want to live with what my father did to me, but I acknowledge it everyday. Art was the only thing that gave me my life back and took 23 years of nightmares away. Every night I would relive what my father did to me and every night I would ask God to take the nightmares away. I thank God for the freedom I now have. The moon represents that hope to be free.
