El Pelo Largo (long hair) Embroidery works from Carmen Julia @carmenjuliadurangarcia Artist Statement: "I've been told what to do my whole life. I've been dragged and moved from one place to another without saying a word and agreeing to everything I had been told. This year I decided that was it. I’m old enough to make my own decisions, and to say if I’m okay with something or not. I made my first selfish decision. I chopped my hair off and got control over my life. That girl with the long hair is gone. "
