The goal of Arlene Miller Creative Writing is to recognize and support all forms of creative expression. To achieve this goal, this blog will profile actors, artists, authors and musicians with articles acknowledging their work.
Actress Jenna Rose Simon has not only used her acting talent to inhabit characters and tell their stories, but more importantly, allowed her incredible artistic ability to be the voice of empowerment. Using her social media platforms, Simon introduced a grateful audience to her exquisite art. The emotional depth of her work speaks to the inner pain of verbal and mental abuse, yet it empowers through the recognition that survivors don’t surrender their voices to their abusers.
Jenna Rose Simon empowers through art
I first discovered actress and artist Jenna Rose Simon when she was interviewed in May, 2016 by my twin sister Stacy, a contributing writer and marketing manager for The Nerdy Girl Express. Stacy’s enthusiasm for Jenna Rose Simon’s many talents was evident. The young actress who excels in film, television and voice over work has the incredible ability to raise awareness and emotionally connect with people through her beautifully powerful art.
Simon explained how acting and art influence her: “I feel that acting has given me a work ethic that is extremely necessary for art. It takes time and dedication, and every piece requires energy. Additionally, I’ve always loved acting because it is a way to inspire others. Many of my great inspirations are actors. When I realized that I can inspire through art and the messages one can convey in a drawing, I just wanted to do it all the time!”
Take a look at Jenna Rose Simon’s drawings below. This art amazingly brings awareness to the issue of mental and verbal abuse. In addition, her art empowers with the clear message that you can’t be silenced by your abusers.
