My 2018 Self Portrait “Rise”

“Rise” by Leslie Anne Ikpe

Strolled right into 2019 finishing this piece up….the perfect energy.

Each year, for the past 4 years now, I’ve painted and revealed a self portrait on or around the time of my birthday. It feels like the perfect time to do something intentionally creative and to track my growth as an artist. It really is cool being able to look back from year to year and see how my skill has developed.

To all my fellow artists and creatives out there: You are amazing. The world needs your creative energy. Take care of yourselves and make this place better.

Hope you can appreciate something about this piece.

All my fellow artists say what up.
