If I Lived In a Castle
I’ve always found myself inspired by the decadent beauty, and the architecture and design of Versailles, unquestionably one of the greatest palaces ever built. I was lucky enough to visit Versailles on a girls trip I took in April of 2018 with two of my best friends who kindly accompanied me on a necessary break from the difficulties swirling around my life at that moment in time, and wanted to capture the joy of this trip. It’s the warmth of friendship that informed my choice of palette for this image as I selected colors of the rainbow which I associate with feelings of happiness and a sense of good vibes. This work represents juxtaposition itself - challenge and triumph, sadness and smiles, chaos and collection - and for me, materializes a harmonious and heart-warming order to it all.
