My artwork focuses in on the black-and-white face of a teenage girl. The girl represents the individuals, both young and old, suffering from a diabetic disorder. I have manipulated and layered images of blood cells that surround her. However, they do not cover her face or impair her eyesight. She is still looking forward with ease. With proper management regarding sugar levels in the blood stream, the struggles a diabetes patient has can be conquered. The patient will be able to persevere and see through their diabetes, pushing it to the sidelines of their life.
