illustration of I have been caged in this fortress for longer than I care to remember. Yet I have never seen a wall or a painting. Just darkness. How long have I been here exactly. Silence has been my best friend. Darkness my greatest enemy. This window, my greatest hope.

illustration of I remember the last window I came across was 20 feet high. Now I have stumbled into this room with this window. Low enough for me to climb, yet it’s occupied with these metal bars. I haven’t eaten for weeks but still I’m not skinny enough to squeeze through them.

illustration of If there’s one thing I have learned on this journey it’s that inner peace and freedom isn’t something that is given to you. It’s something you give to yourself. Something you have to work hard for and earn through your own commitment and dedication.

illustration of How long has it been? 1,2 maybe 3 years since I walked into this cave. Time becomes blurred within darkness. I have walked and crawled enough for 3 life times, just trying to find my way out of this labyrinth. I was told it would be hard to find the light, but I could never have imagined the mountain I would have to climb mentally, physically and emotionally. Now, Here I stand, drenched in the beauty of my own perseverance, my own light. This is what Freedom looks and smells like.
illustration of I’ve seen you roaming the landscape of my mind. What are you looking for? I spend so many hours watching you, just observing your movements, your roars your cries. I used to run from you but now I see you for what you truly are.

illustration of Beating yourself up won’t change your situation. Your spirit won’t guide you when you force it. When you fall, reach out your own hand to yourself and help yourself up with as much compassion as possible. This is the only way to build trust with yourself. Trusting oneself is the source of impenetrable 'Self' confidence.

Profile

My name is Ashton Springer and I am an artist by nature, spirit and soul. My visual vocabulary was formed over many tough years of living with an anxiety disorder in my early 20’s, which ultimately shaped the way in which I view and translate my subject to a surface. Years of constant mental strain can push most people to find an escape route to a different world altogether and fortunately for me, I found my alternate world through my art. Through art and self directed healing I elevated my consciousness and continue to do so. I understand how difficult this human experience can be for most and I am also aware of the healing power of art. The basis of what I do is bringing awareness to common issues that we experience daily. My goal is to communicate difficult concepts and ideas in a way that is engaging and reflective. Whether that is via an Editorial or a children's book the mission and message is always the same.
