My work is a self-portrait that uses a mixed technique, combining acrylics with graphite pencils and textures to give expressiveness to my work. Through my visual representation, I seek to convey the importance of knowing oneself and accepting oneself as one is, recognizing my own nature and value.
My message also highlights that personal well-being entails a deep sense of freedom. By accepting and loving myself, I free myself from the expectations and standards imposed by society, empowering myself to be authentic, express my true self, and pursue my own dreams and desires.
In short, my painting conveys an inspiring message through the connection between personal well-being as a teenager and female empowerment, inviting people to embrace their true essence, accept themselves without reservations, and seek well-being as a source of freedom and personal growth.
