This work is oil, acrylic, and posca pen on unstretched canvas. My intent behind this work was to make it seem like it came from a little kid. Growing up, I always wanted to be an artist. As I grew older I sort of let these dreams be stripped away by life experiences and people telling me that it was unrealistic. It wasn't until my sophomore year of college where I began to take my work as an artist seriously, switching my major and declaring that I was pursuing this journey with my life. I knew I needed to cut away the parts of me that no loner served me, the parts of self doubt I carried with me. I wanted to reconnect to my inner child and follow my dreams, opening doors for myself by doing so. My message reads as, "Inside every adult is a child waiting to be reconnected to, craving expression, seeking release from the idea that the child within is not the present self".
