The Chrysalis + Instinct Amulet Art Project: Self-Portrait is a based on the premise that our IDENTITY serves as our best protection: It helps us to stay in the LIGHT: A true WARRIOR advances toward POSITIVE results and DEFENDS the GOOD in his/her LIFE.
The Self-Portrait Art is based on three guiding goals: Self-Realization * Self-Value * Self-Respect * With an end goal: Self-Worth* Thirteen grade 9 students signed up and attended after school, in a classroom with lots of natural light, offered by the Principal. I brought the art supplies: the young artists created the ART. Truly EDUCATIONAL for everyone involved, in this Community Service based project.
Each Self-Portrait work BEGINS the: A Brilliant Star We Are *Self-Portrait* Art Gallery©.
Be Free. Live Truth.

Brilliant Star 11: This art is an abstract representation of my self-portrait, to detail my fractured soul. I have scoliosis of the spine and this is something I am aware of with everything I do. And last year I also lost my best friend, my father, tragically in a car accident.
The white waves represent my spine with scoliosis. And the white crack represents my fractured soul of losing my father. I believe everyone is damaged in one way or another. The difference is whether we reveal it to others or hide it.
I show myself here as a blue sphere. When I was young, I would decipher the world around me with colours and shapes. My father is at the centre of my work and is represented by the green triangle.
Overall, this abstract art is my reflection without the mask of my face. A true representation of all the things we cannot see from the outside.
All good things possible always…
