“I want to see myself like the giant colourful rose in the collage… It’s unique, bright & beautiful!”

This collage is a self-reflection of going through different stages of physical and mental struggles. Elements of art are used to create images that communicate the artist’s moods and feelings, from despair, sadness and how she has managed these feelings by holding on to faith, hope, and joy everyday.
