Meet Artist Jennifer Greive

What is the inspiration behind the piece of art you’ve submitted? 

I believe in giving support and encouragement to others. That everyone rises when we lift them up. Doesn't it feel good to encourage someone else when they are feeling down? I always find it best to be supportive instead of bringing someone down. We all face so many obstacles in our lives. I wish the world could be a better place. I believe it could be better if everyone was kind to each other.

What are you passionate about?

I'm very passionate about in stopping the stigma of mental health. It's not something that should be ignored. As someone who has gone through so much anxiety the past two years including being depressed I know all too well. No one notices it. No one pays attention. Let your voices be heard! No one realizes what you have to go through in your head. If we all understood this I feel that everyone who goes through depression and anxiety could truly get the help they need to overcome it. Stop calling them lazy and that it's all in their heads. It's not all in our heads. We just need to know that someone cares.

What’s one message you think the world needs to hear right now? 

That no one is alone. We all go through so much in our lives and I know one day we will get to where we want to be. Just be kind to others. It would make the world a better place.
