This artwork is inspired by the struggles women go through during our lifetimes and the scars those leave behind.
While creating this piece I practiced trusting my intuition and stripping back all the layers down to the raw canvas letting go of all the details that were not meant to stay. As I washed the excess paint away I positively reflected on each scars I have from my own adverse experiences.
I celebrate my femininity and embrace the mental & emotional strength that I gained. I reflect on how far I came and am grateful for the resilience that I developed, knowing that no matter what happens, even if everything gets taken away, I can always start over again, and get to a better place than before.
I invite the viewer to do the same and positively reflect on their journey and everything that led up to the present.
