Self Portrait

I keep self portraits as a coping mechanism. To portray parts of myself that are otherwise hidden, ugly, dark. To confront the dissatisfaction in a way that is benign. And to celebrate my womanhood.

“No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.” - Martha Graham
