Artwork Description

Watercolour, acrylic, pencil, and ink on Arches watercolour paper. Mounted on canvas.

This is a self-portrait representing how we can be our own worst enemy in the fight over our own self-worth - how we undermine ourselves and tear ourselves down too often. This represents what we feel when we experience physical or mental trauma and the emotional struggle with belief in one's self, confidence, depression, self-doubt and exhaustion that follows these events. Then trying to find the inner strength and courage to rise up, recover, fight on, and live a happy life despite all that.

Imagery: The spears represent our self-sabotage; the nudity represents the raw nature of honesty with one's self and the baring of our soul to allow recovery; the darkness represents isolation as this war rages inside our mind and our body; and the triskelion carved in stone in this instance represents the ancient beliefs and power of the Triple goddess from which this woman can draw strength.

So no matter how dire the situation, there is always hope and strength within.


Watercolour, acrylic, and ink on Arches watercolour paper. Mounted edge to edge on a canvas with a 35mm deep frame.
