My body of work is a representation of my journey of self-discovery, to self-love. The work explores the idea that other people see beauty in me that I don’t see in myself. The mirror represents my curiosity. Each different perspective or angle of the mirror expresses another side of myself that I may not have appreciated or even seen before. My intent in using graphite is to create a monochromatic palette for my work, encouraging viewers to steer away from seeing its beauty visually, but to see the beauty in its message.
