Eliza Coulson, who is 20 years old, turned her its own experience into award-winning artistry after she was sexually harassed by a guy she had just met.
“He shaped me feel as if it was normal, although I knew I felt uncomfortable, ” she says. “I was scared.”
The events contributed to the creation of a project on “self-love, self-worth, and self-empowerment”.
“I applied my artwork as a means to process what I’d had been through, ” she says. Now, she applies her artistry as instruments to empower others.
A year later, she was named Young Photographer of the Year at the Scottish Portrait Awards 2018. Eliza has told the BBC Scotland news website how artwork helped her canal positivity into her life and the lives of others.
