  10. Day 2: Your idol- One of my biggest idols is artist Margaret Kilgallen. I love her work because it shows beauty in everyday life. Her style of work was inspired by folk art and from her environment around the Mission District in SF. This quote below always reminds me that making something imperfect can still be beautiful.

    "My hand will always be imperfect because it’s human and I think it’s the part that’s off that’s interesting. That even if I’m doing really big letters and I spend a lot of time going over the line and trying to make it straight, I’ll never be able to make it straight. From a distance it might look straight, but when you get close up you can always see the line waver and I think that’s where the beauty is." - Margaret Kilgallen (1967 - 2001)

  11. Day 1: Silly selfie - So I saw this project on here and I thought this might be fun and maybe help me get to know oneself again (plus who doesn’t love taking pictures of themselves?) Anyways, I am Margaret and I am 21 and I love art and travel. #radicalselflovejuly #vscocam

     
  12. Normally when I do self portraits on here I am wearing something. This time I actually got inspired by the movie Her. The colors are rich with oranges, pinks, and cream colors. I also just wanted to show how hard it is to let go of fears and just trust oneself. #vscocam #filters #Her #selfportrait #allthesefeelings
