Bursting Out of Silence, Bethany Ryan, Veteran-Army (2004-2009)
She hopes by sharing her artwork others find strength, understanding and meaningful connections. Her art is what she attributes for making the most progress in her healing journey. Bethany’s explanation of how Bursting Out of Silence was created because her trauma was just too complicated or intimidating to express with words. Art has been a safer way for me to trudge through trauma.
