Laura Tovar, Self-portrait, Digital Drawing, 2020

Growing up can be difficult. It’s hard to decide when you have “outgrown” pieces of yourself that once felt fundamental to who you were in a younger version. In Self-Portait, I wanted to use different colours to represent all of the parts that make me, me. Whether those things are “childish” or something I once held dear in my younger years, I would not be who I am today without them.
