If This Is from My Untrained Background, What Can I Accomplish If Properly Educated?

Finding the Beauty in Everything, 2021

As a child, I attended 3 different primary schools, 3 different high-schools, and moved house at least once every 2 years. Being barely educated, minimal life experience, and a severe lack of confidence, its easy to be overlooked and blend into the background. I’ve recently realised that I need to see myself as I would like to be seen, before I’m even noticed by anyone else. Drawing and photography has helped me to express myself and ease my severe anxiety and depression. I’d love to inspire others  to try this form of relaxation through art, truly appreciate the world around them, and start to see things in a positive light.
