Made an artwork out of my Oxford rejection letter #oxford #Art

The final year of high school is a anxiety-ridden time, filled with nervous trips to the mailbox to retrieve college acceptance letters . . . or rejections. The stress associated with these last few months before true adulthood can be a lot to handle, but 18-year-old Claudia Vulliamy figured out how to channel it into something beautiful like we've never seen before.

An artist and London resident, Claudia was denied acceptance to Oxford University, a school at which she hoped to pursue her creative passions. Upon receiving her rejection letter, the high schooler didn't sit around and wallow in self-pity, but rather chose to repurpose the piece of paper into a stunning work of art. The abstract artwork features clippings of those dreaded words, from "not been possible to offer you a place" and "future studies elsewhere." When mixed with splashes of primary paint colors, the result is a beautiful illustration of Claudia's refusal to let this small bump in the road dull her spirits.

When her mother, Louisa Saunders, shared a photo of her artwork on Twitter, it garnered more than 50,000 retweets and dozens of responses praising Claudia for her artistry and resilience. We're also applauding how this gal channeled her stress into something so abstractly beautiful.
