As a kid, I was eccentric. I had an imagination that would make my parents puzzled. I said and did things that were just… different. I wasn’t a “normal child”. Who would have known that those things didn’t change as I became an adult. I’m still eccentric, and my imagination is even more wild and crazier than ever. And it’s fun, and liberating to just be me!
This lead me to create this piece. “The Perfect Pumpkin”. It reminded me when I would go pumpkin picking and find the most wacky looking pumpkin because it had it’s own personality. It had it’s own beauty. And that’s pretty much what I want to showcase here. I wanted to think along the lines of a storybook aimed at young girls. Teaching them that beauty doesn’t always mean perfection. It means uniquity and what makes them special. And to appreciate and love every bit about them.
Because being different is beautiful.
