I’m afraid of becoming labelled. I’m young and I’m early in my career, but things have been picking up, and I’ve become obsessed with this issue. Like, I don’t want to be known as one of those people that paints wide-eyed girls. I’ve been trying to diversify my subject matter and not necessarily always include funny elements like I usually do.
