When we first received the assignment for our senior art thesis, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I knew it had to be something that reflected ourselves. I wanted to do a self-portrait in a creative way. I chose to do a mosaic of personal symbols along with the saying "live freely, love deeply, laugh often." It is a way for me to show who I am on the inside and that I am more than just what people see on the outside. Often in our society we get distracted with the physical and material parts of life and lose sight of internal qualities. We often do not take the time to get to know people because of what they look like or where they come from. My project represents my internal qualities and things in my life that make me who I am.
