Some of Artist Statement: “These paintings also explore the complexity and beauty of the feminine. They represent an ever-expanding embrace of my own femininity and acknowledgement of a certain strength found only in vulnerability and tenderness. In a culture that – at times subtly and at times overtly – expects women to be at once sexual and virginal, strong but not overbearing, sensitive but not too emotional, I aim to represent women who define sensuality, strength and sensitivity on their own terms.
Ultimately, I remain endlessly curious of a painting’s ability to communicate independently from any figurative framework as energy broken down into color, texture and movement. “. Read more via her FB.
