"Stuck on the journey of self-love and acceptance - do I use these clothes as self-expression or distraction? Do they show all the bold parts of my personality, or do I use them as a guise to hide who I really am?"
Born in Canberra, Jacqueline Ripoll has always been a creative who struggled with her mental health. Growing up, Jacqueline, like most young teens in her generation, was force-fed images of the 'ideal body'. A reflection of her past is seen within her works, which push hard against these damaging ideals.
Since moving to Brisbane in 2019, she has dedicated herself to a creative career and opening a discussion about body image and identity.
