Polka dots and jazz hands

“I’m not an artist in the least bit, so the only way to really have fun with this was to draw myself as a stick figure. Because of that, I didn’t really need to worry about how I looked, per se, but I think I focused on my essence (hippy-dippy but true!).

I see myself as very bright (color-wise) & energetic & quirky & welcoming, which explains the big smile & the outstretched arms.  But when I went to label things, I immediately saw the arms as ‘jazz hands’ & added that element of my personality – the musical theater performer – into the self-portrait, too. My favorite quote is, ‘Always reach for the moon – even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.’  I always feel a sense of opportunity & awesomeness when I look at the sky, so stars have always held something symbolic for me.  I had to include them here!”
