My Inner Child 

Pieces of My Self-Portrait






I don’t draw or paint figures. However, the figures I drew, collaged, and painted in the series are my intuitive exploration, representing instances that were significant to me from childhood to motherhood. I needed to embed them with mandalas to narrate my stories.


This series became my first body of work as I emerged from the creative block I experienced in 2022. 


I felt vulnerable, but it was freeing. 

My Inner Child

  • As an artist, I go through gradations of doubting my beliefs and competence. I have been teaching myself to tune down those feelings by looking inward. 


    The symmetry and repetition of patterns on a mandala remind me of connections and relationships that lead us to harmony and peace when we slow down to filter our feelings and emotions.
