Take off the mask and show your true face; it's beautiful.

Artist Statement

Because we constantly try to achieve the impossible, “perfect” life social media depicts, we hide. We mask ourselves behind expensive foundation, the latest mascara and the most popular lipstick—to fit in. But why are we trying to fit in when we were born to stand out? Why not show the world how unique we are—how our inner beauty shines? So, rip that makeup off and embrace yourself. Because you look perfect unmasked.
