ARTISTS STATEMENT
Being naked is a feeling that thrills and liberates me. I have always been one to take off my top at a beach, prance with titties out at Pride parades, or get naked at the top of a mountain after a hike. Casual nudity allows the public to see different representations of bodies that do not fit the strict societal views, and normalises all bodies. I can say I am a confident person, although I do have my days, but this has been a struggle for me as someone who has suffered eating disorders in the past. I Shot Myself is an empowering and liberating experience for me as a model, and for the viewers to see different representations of bodies and celebrations of these.
