Artist Statement

Mirrors are part of our everyday lives. It’s hard to imagine the morning process without one. When looking in a mirror we tend to notice even the smallest imperfections and focus on them when we are really missing the more common, beautiful parts about ourselves. Because of this attitude I think our self-perceptions and confidence are based around our small imperfections especially in our looks. Without mirrors people would be able to focus on their personalities which are far more malleable than our looks.
