"In this self portrait I took inspiration from pre-Raphaelites and how they portrayed women capturing their nostalgia, and the emotional atmosphere of their drawings and paintings. I did this drawing in an evening when I was overwhelmed by the feeling of exhaustion and felt like I was losing my own self in the contradictions of art and motherhood and too many obligations and responsibilities that the latter brought to my life. It served a therapeutic purpose of looking into myself while exploring my face, of relearning about myself and redefining my identity after the change of my life course caused by motherhood."
