I am a self-taught painter. My art is very different as I am always trying out new ways to express myself. The I am Woman collection is inspired by the celebration of Women.
From my teens, I had body image and self-esteem issues stemming from what people around me said about/to me or expected of me and the way I should act.
I am Woman is a statement that even though there will always be people trying to force their opinion on us, we as women have to stand up for ourselves, not take shit from anyone and accept ourselves.
And if we want to change something about ourselves it should be for us and nobody else. As many of you heard the song with the same title: I am Woman, I am fearless, I am sexy, I’m divine…but most of all, I am anything I want. We are not defined by others – whether it be about our body and our looks, our interests and passions, our way of expressing emotions or what is important to us. Love yourself first.
