A ROOM OF ONE’S OWN
I am a daydreamer. Becoming wistfully consumed in my own thoughts, memories, and imagination is practically essential to my daily life. Most often I reminisce about my childhood years – the times I can remember being completely happy and utterly sure of myself. So, when faced with the theme of Dreams and Visions, the things I loved as a child flooded my mind instantly. However there is more to who I am nowadays. Sometime during those awkward teen years I lost who I was, but the sacrifices I have made and the lessons I have learned throughout my twenties have helped me to find that lost soul again – and she’s more complex and whole than ever before. I am now made up of the best parts of my past: vivid imagination alongside a strong sense of conviction; and these traits remain paired with a childlike hope for the future.
A Room of One’s Own is, quite simply and somewhat inexplicably, my visual representation of the exquisite connection you discover with your childhood once you realize you are finally a grown up.
