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©.

Brilliant Stars
Be Free. Live Truth.
Thank You!

Hear No Evil See No Evil Speak No Evil

Brilliant Star 10:“Hear No Evil”, “See No Evil”, “Speak No Evil”, is a form of escape from today’s society. My self-portrait shows me in the clouds, where I can protect myself from the harsh realities of our world. In my imagination, I can create a world of beauty.

The background is set in space and stars, to show that I ‘reach for the stars’ with school and life. It also represents my big dreams. The butterflies symbolize my free spirit, and, my love for nature.

I used paint because it’s messier than other mediums, yet, the outcome can be beautiful. I, also, think it’s a perfect representation of life: messy and beautiful.

All good things possible always…
