Sophia, Age 10

  • Mixed media
  • Mixed media and photography on paper
  • A3 portrait

This is a mixed media piece created from my self-portrait in cultural dress to express what it means to embody my greatest version of myself, through my 'Queen' energy. Based on Medieval iconic imagery and Indian goddesses (reflecting my dual heritage) I have created a gold halo around me that has inspirational words to express the qualities I wish to embody. I believe a true acceptance of my identity and inner self-acceptance is an important foundation to inner happiness and inner confidence. My aim as 'Queen' is to embody the highest version of myself and to inspire others to do the same.
