My work is a letter to my younger self, teenage girls are convinced that their validation comes from the people around them, rather than finding that validation within themselves. I wish I had found the Punk Icons of Poly Styrene, Siouxsie Sioux and Patti Smith when I was a teenager, and learned from feminism and womanism earlier so I knew then what I know now; The only person who’s opinion about you matters, is you. All bodies are beautiful bodies, and the Patriarchy fucks us all over. It’s time to tear that shit down.
