This is Lydia. Lydia is really timid, a result of her tumultuous childhood. She left home at fifteen and ended up taking dubious modelling jobs in sleazy warehouses to make ends meet. Lydia spent the next fifteen years hating every inch of her body, and the only relief she could find for that hatred was to physically harm herself. Lydia has been in therapy for many years and has come a long way. Last weekend she bought a full length mirror and is everyday she loves that reflection just a little bit more.
Lydia is a vibrant original acrylic painting by Nicola Hallman, on canvas paper 25cm x 27cm
