I was interested in exploring the female form as a motif, however I wanted to develop a deeper conceptual meaning behind my work. I chose to research self expression, which struck up the idea to turn my idea into self portraiture, and to explore my own self expression and identity. I specifically worked with acrylic paints as I think there is a never-ending process of learning in art. I developed my own unique style which was derived from several artists, I used this style to create a series of paintings which show the development of my ideas.
