In Amy’s words:

Ever since I was a little kid I’ve always loved to draw cartoons and was always immersed in the arts. My scribblers, binders, and notes were full of doodles that I would draw while listening to music. I remember ignoring my math teacher’s lecture in junior high by making my comic books. Even though I love being a Fitness and Lifestyle Consultant at MacEwan Sport and Wellness, my first love will always be creating, and I’m happy I can keep it as a hobby.  I love what art has to offer. I feel free and grounded when I get to express myself creatively.

This was the illustrated self-portrait that Amy came up with to start the concept:

And this is the photo we shot to recreate and mirror the illustration:
