Honorable Mention BIFA 2022 Fine Art / Collage
I explore my love for water in relation to my hypersensitivity.
Through self-portraits, I evoke the comforting, peaceful place, away from the chaos of the outside world, a place where it is easy for me to let go, a cradle in which I can dance with life.
