What is your dream destination?🌍🖤
I am truly happy that I have experienced Lofoten, even during winter and darkness, it is and will always be magical 😍 ...
‘exhausted’ - another self portrait ❤︎ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
this drawing is part of my final piece for my a-level coursework. the narrative i wanted to portray is the feeling that (i’ve found) comes with having a chronic illness. having a composition that shows exhaustion, distortion and angst is supposed to show the viewer, physically, what they may not actually see that someone goes through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i’m really happy with how this came out!! it was really challenging (the size being the main thing). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i really hope you like it!! ❤︎

You will hear thunder and remember me
And think: she wanted storms.
The rim of the sky will be the colour of hard crimson
And your heart, as it was then, will be on fire.
