At home waxing is not, in fact, easier the second time, Acrylic on canvas, 18" x 24"

It was in fifth grade when l realized my thighs were fat. It's taken years to move past that insecurity, but that uncomfortableness lingers in the art l create. The same body awareness that inspired me to chew at the hair on my knuckles (l had far too much of it - did other ten year old girls have the same dark hair on their hands?) now feeds my creative work. It's funny to reveal the most vulnerable aspects of myself and hear from others 'Me too'. Suddenly I'm not the only one mutually fascinated and horrified with what our bodies are capable of.
My thighs are just as squishy now, only now when l see the expanse of gooseflesh, the silver trails of stretch marks and the dimples when l prod and poke and squeeze, I see beauty in those imperfections. That's what inspires me to push beyond typical depictions of the human form. That's why I paint.
