#0 Learning to be more confident to make better art ⭐ My healing journey

This is the story of how striving for perfection became unhealthy and unproductive. And how I am learning to change my life to make better art and become more confident.

It is a story of the past few years intertwined with captured moments of my present self as I create art and clean my future studio. This is the start of my healing process, and I’m sharing it with you.
