VIEW IN MY ROOM
This piece represents all the things I never knew I needed: love for my mind, body, and soul. I used to grow my hair out and over-exercise because I thought it was the only way others would find me attractive. Today, I keep my hair healthy to watch it grow, and I exercise to keep my body strong. To love oneself is to adorn one's complexities with gold and to allow something beautiful to bloom even in the darkest corners of one's being. This is represented by the jasmine flowers, which symbolize love, weaving its golden vines through the tangles of my hair.

Anna Mikhaela Reyes is a contemporary artist based in Denton, Texas. After receiving her BFA in Drawing and Painting from Kennesaw State University, Anna focused her practice on the use of charcoal, watercolor, and colored pencil to elevate the romanticism of botany and the human figure. Anna's work explores themes in psychology, the flux of personal vulnerabilities, and the elusiveness of interpersonal connection. Common to her work is obscure symbolism as well as the intertwining elements of romance and melancholy—an acceptance that the most beautiful things in life are often bittersweet.
