Am I beautiful yet?
Why do we believe our natural appearance needs to be enhanced? At a makeup counter I watched a woman’s face being painted by an enthusiastic ‘beautician’ using a rainbow of cosmetics which actually masked the customer’s natural beauty. When will we realise, we are beautiful just the way we are.
This quilt is now touring Europe with the SAQA Wide Horizons V exhibition.
