"'I feel like I've met you before?' I say to my reflection in the midst of recovery. This piece is like most of my works; representing my own experiences with an eating disorder which occupied the majority of my teenage years and ongoing depression. Fear, isolation, judgement, and insecurity are huge factors in this piece; focusing on the inward battle I faced with myself every single day during recovery. I was my own worst enemy, which is why I use multiple portraits to convey my turmoiled mind. A pen, paper, and my paints were my greatest form of recovery and remain to be every day that I feel myself struggling."
