As part of the 2015 Art Project, with Victoria Teasdale in Mexborough, United Kingdom
The year long project is focused on creating art as a reflection on self improvement, self awareness, and self worth, self healing, and self compassion. I thought it would be a great project since I am transforming my life with my recent choice of having Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) surgery. I have read many stories of the ups and downs of this process and thought this might be a great way to help me through the tough time that will surely come up!
Week One kicked off with a wonderful project exploring how the past has shaped us to be the person you are today. The words on my girl's shirts are words that I believe describe me or would like the world to see me as.
Her eyes are closed as she reflects on her life.
