While the artist Priyanka says, “I want to leave a message to every woman – just be who you are, practice affirming to yourself for what you wish to achieve. The power is just inside you. The poetry in my paintings are part of those positive thoughts that I have come across while affirming. It’s the power of your subconscious. This gave me a thought that instead of painting the pain in me, I should portray the immense power that we possess. Believe me, it’s magical! Just start thinking for it and you will have it.
