I have always loved making art, but it wasn’t until I came to college that I seriously considered art a choice as a professional career. I began to see how much art really made me who I am. So in this photo that I took of myself, I wanted to represent how I let myself completely surrender to my love of art and let it embody who I am.

“For this project, I was prompted to create a self-portrait. Inspired by the works of Martin Schoeller, I created an image of myself that is intentionally posed and carefully focused on the face. This draws attention to small details, and presents myself as an item on display, dehumanizing myself and causing the viewer to consider the face as if it were an item and not part of a body or personality.”
