Caitlyn Jenner is praising the artist who took hateful tweets against her and transformed them into an interpretation of her recent Vanity Fair cover.

After being inspired by Jenner's transition, Conor Collins, an artist from England, worked around the clock until his piece was finished.
"Caitlyn's making a difference in the trans community, however I didn't want to hide the darkness and persecution they face in my art piece." Collins tells Out. "It was horrible having to research and write the tweets on the canvas."
And his work did not go unnoticed.
Jenner noticed the piece and tweeted the artwork to her own 2.86 million followers, applauding Collins and his powerful message.
Turning hate into love is so beautiful and powerful - great job by this artist https://t.co/Q8XEs6FVlO

"I admire what Caitlyn has done and how she has used her position and privileged to make a difference," Collins says. "I went on her twitter to see more, and was horrified by some of the comments. When I saw these, I wanted to showcase them because it is a reality of what trans people experience every day."
