Artist's Description

Well some lovely redbubble friends have triggered a could I do that? wondering in me. I don’t love pictures of myself, as no one seems to ever want to take a decent one of me, and darn…they never look like the kid I feel like on the inside.

As a mother with kids growing up, I do suddenly find myself wondering who on Earth am now. The last 14 years have been quite busy and otherwise occupied, so my own identity has been defined by what I am doing often by default. Look in a mirror…hahaha. Mirrors are to make sure there is no poppy seeds caught in my teeth before I go to work and other such utilitarian acts. I used to be pretty funky in my dress and attitudes. Flamboyant at times. Now settled down and actually enjoying the peace and calmer outlook that seems to have developed over time.

For my 43rd birthday I asked my daughter to choose some good makeup for me. I don’t really do makeup except about once a year at some conference dinner or other rare occasion. Hence my techniques (and makeup) are all about 14 years old or more. We haven’t had a chance to play much yet, but Ariel gave me some lovely makeup and she will now have to teach me what on Earth to do with it!

So here I am. It is about time I worked out at least what I look like and come to grips with that…then work out the rest as it comes.
Karen Betts has undertaken a wonderful personal journey, and so has Tania Palermo . Check out these inspiring women!
