Vision Statement

This self portrait is a reflection of my primal feeling of the need to hide away within a safe dwelling. I wanted to play with the juxtaposition of a hard surface embracing my body while my face shows comfort. The rocky undulations represent a cave-like interior which bring an almost womb effect and the gaze of my figure mirrors the serene emotion of being completely oneself.
