Inspired by a fossilized cave bear tooth in her studio, Quintessa created this piece while dealing with creative pressure and imposter syndrome as an emerging artist. She wanted to create a piece dedicated solely to painting what inspired her. In that moment, it was painting hands, this fossil, and the rest is purely emotional.
“Eventually we all reach a point in our lives where, in order to make an impact and to do what we were placed on this earth to do, we need to be honest about who we are and re-evaluate the way we present ourselves to others-and ourselves at times.”
