In regards to her work, she writes, “Confidence plays a vital role in the concept of self-love. Self-love is the action of having a high regard for your well-being and overall happiness. Self-love tends to be thought of as a vague concept in which a person would have to look in a mirror and be okay with what they see, but it is beyond that. Self-love is being able to love every inch of yourself and not let others’ viewpoints affect your own.┬áNever Be Afraid to be Powerful is a charcoal self-portrait that conveys the significant role confidence has on one’s overall view of themself. This piece has a strong emphasis on power, beauty, and pure satisfaction of being one’s self. The self-portrait’s rawness shows how one can genuinely thrive within their own skin once confidence is found within them. This self-portrait captures the importance of truly loving yourself inside and out, learning how to break from your shell, and being fearless in who you are.”
