    Combining my love for traditional techniques with my storytelling skills, I’ve composed a self-portrait without myself included. I’ve always enjoyed producing colorful creations (like the crocheted scarf here), as well as surrounding myself with eye-stimulating keepsakes (connected to special memories) to help ease my deeply depressive thoughts. In this painting, I aimed to symbolize maintaining my warmth and hope despite the feeling of unshakable melancholy.
