Self Portraiture

Upcoming group exhibition Self Portraiture, Brunswick Street Gallery, 8 July - 21 August, 2016.
"Many women go through their life feeling self conscious about their body image. This painting is a celebration of self acceptance and for being beautiful as a woman. Loving yourself for who you are is a sign of strength and empowerment. The French have a saying 'bien dans sa peau' which loosely translates to 'comfortable in your own skin'. At 46 I can finally accept myself for who I am, without pretence or self consciousness."
