Shazia - Mo - Canvas On Board


As a child I spent most of my childhood in my own imaginary world. I was an incredibly shy child and repeatedly hid behind my sister who was eleven months older than me and would speak on my behalf. I think now I realize my imagination helped maintain an existence I couldn’t quite secure as a child growing up. My sister was extremely important to me as a bridge to normality. Mo is based on my sister. The large double chinned face, the bling bling ribbons in her hair and the overly pink cheeks derive from the sincere love and loyalty of my heart, such as I felt at that time for my sister. The little diamond necklace denotes a tear.
