Colours, Pain and Womanhood – Inaya Folarin
I painted this when I went through a period of struggling immensely with life. There was a person that I wanted to be and had envisaged myself as but I felt as if nothing was working for me and that my dreams for myself were far out of my grasp. I was trying to mould an identity for myself but it kept falling through my fingers like sand.
Acceptance and trust have frequently been my biggest personal challenges and I am learning and growing from this everyday.
