Artist Statement

The phrase “I love myself” is one coated with terror and discomfort. In a society that profits off people (especially women) by picking apart all of their insecurities, engaging in acts of self-acceptance is an unspeakable rebellion. It shouldn’t be! We must wholeheartedly embrace ourselves before being able to unconditionally love all others. We must embrace our own differences, first and foremost. The journey begins there!
