Artist Statement

Self-love is accepting ourselves just as we are. Women have been judged for not complying with the stereotypes of the “perfect body,” and it hasn’t been easy to love each other just as we are. I want to communicate loving ourselves and loving others. I used the Clip Studio Paint program and a Wacom Intuos Draw Small graphic tablet to do my work. All hearts represent our ways of loving, either ourselves or others.
