An instillation I made today for a group crit with my class.🕺🏼it’s entitled ‘where it all began’ and basically shows the contrast between my childhood (right) and the artwork I make now (left). I’ve been wanting to try an instillation for a while now so thought why not give it a goooo, it baso shows a scene from my childhood that has subconscious throughout time effected the way I approach my own artwork (more pics and close ups to come) :)
Did you ever settle for a Christmas card that said ‘Merry Christmas Nan & Grandad’, even though that’s not what you call them at all? Been there. I know for a fact I have never been able to find a card saying ‘Nanny & Taid’ (even in Wales). Which is the main reason I started making my own cards - long before my business was born. At Daughter of Dawn we understand that everyone has their own unique terms for their family and friends, that’s why we create completely personalised cards. Whether you have a Nan & Grandad, Nanny & Taid, or Mamar & Gan Gan - we’ll have the right card for you this Christmas 💫

Some of y’all still acting like I’m not the baddest bitch of the west. 💅🏼
My little break from social media allowed me to spend my free time on things that’ll give me a more positive release, it allowed me to heal from the hurt I felt and channel that into art...for the first time in a very long time, I actually felt inspired (sounds like a true tortured artist, doesn’t it haha) and from that came this piece - it’s not as sad as it looks...it’s actually led to one of those “aha” moments...you know the one...
I came to the realization that closure doesn’t come from the person you once loved.. it comes from realizing that everyone isn’t for everyone and from knowing you did everything you could.
Heartbreaks suck, yes. But it’s nothing compared to the major win of falling back in love with yourself 🤍
