Where’s the fire behind your eyes?

Emma Christie, 16

My artwork explores the fire within all of us, and that all it takes is a tiny spark to start a chain reaction causing an explosion of emotions. We need to beat the stigma around emotions, as we all have them, and bottling them up can cause more harm than good. The flames can also be used for good, giving you the push you need to do something important. Everyone, no matter how shy and quiet, has the capability and drive to start a (metaphorical) fire. All it takes is a little spark.
