My work is heavily based on the body, mainly working towards acceptance of the way I look and feel about my body.  My main medium is oil paint. The act of painting is therapeutic and feels necessary to come closer with my body and how it looks. The whole project started through research into body dysmorphic disorder which affects a fair amount of the population including me to a certain extend. Working with my own body as inspiration this project has become something a lot more personal than anticipated and is now a form of celebration and admiration for what the human body is capable of and has helped me find some acceptance towards my own body.
