Comment/Statement: This painted ceramic
plate is a continuation of my series of
self-portraits. The words around the plate reflect some of
the things that I believe all women should do for themselves.
GIVE yourself permission
Always BELIEVE in yourself
ASPIRE to challenge yourself
LOVE who you are
Take time to CREATE and use your talents
LAUGH with those you cherish
BECOME the best that you can be
TRUST in your intuitions
SHARE yourself and your knowledge with others
and remember to PAMPER yourself!
