"Self Love" Single Print

from 7.00

About two years ago I unknowingly embarked on a journey of self love and care that I had no idea would impact me the way it had. I was struggling to see beauty within myself which I now realize is because of the social constructs and confines that society has lead us to believe is beautiful.  As an artist, I create to feel something- something other than what I'm used to feeling; it's a therapeutic action for me, healing and quiet. When I was going through troubling times, I would find solace in creating dreamy collages of the worlds I'd like to exist inside of.  Sooner of later, these collages morphed into the exact visions I see inside my head of myself.  Using self portraits I've taken as well as photos of nature or other objects in which I easily find beauty, I found it to be soothing to incorporate myself into my art. Abstracting pieces of my physical being and blending them into things that I love, I unknowingly created an unconventional practice of self love and healing.  This piece is an ode to a time when it was almost impossible to see any beauty in me, and an ode to the progress I've made in loving myself and as a result, others.  I hope this inspires you to find a self love practice of your own and to work on loving yourself as well as others more each and every day.  

This print is offered loose or in a unique custom frame in which I've acquired, dismantling and reassembling with love.
