mixed media collage on canvas. 36 x 36 inch
As a teenager, I collected bits and pieces from magazines and papers that inspired me or captured parts of who I was. I stored them in my mum's basement and forgot all about them until rediscovering them years later. It was amazing to realise that as a teenager, I was already well and truly on my way to being who I am now. This artwork is a collage made from these pieces, capturing memories and making a transformative, time travelling spell, helping me to love that younger version of myself rather than seeing them as 'not good enough yet'.
