I am not happy and I am not sad by Tamara Iris Mckenzie

Currently unavailable for purchase

I am at a very transitional period in my life. Since I can remember I have always loved drawing and writing and creating things. However somewhere along the way I got lost and for more the 5 years I barely wrote, did anything creative or anything I enjoyed. It was only as my relationship of six years started to break down that I found myself returning to what I have always loved doing, telling stories, whether through word or image. This self portrait depicts my state of mind right now, not happy because my relationship is over but not sad because my first love has come back to me.

    Very expressive! It’s always good to create when you have stuff inside that needs to get out.

  • Thanks. You comment means a lot to me. You are an amazing artist.
