An image from a series titled ‘Pretty Baby’

My artwork takes on a teenager’s mind that succumbs to the pressures of conformity. 
I find the pressure to conform unavoidable to an extent, alt-hough I perceive individuality as a piece of fine art. 
It’s human nature to conform to common behaviour and ideals. 
The power to change lives is in having the strength to stand apart from other people’s ideals.  
This series is about coming into your own and being happy with whom you are. 
“The reward for conformity is that everyone likes you but yourself.” 
- Rita Mae Brown
