Let me help you see your beautiful.
I paint unapologetic women. Unapologetically.
Because we all deserve to shine.
Art was a means of communicating without speaking when I was young and painfully shy. Figurative elements have always found their way into my work, regardless of the subject matter. Maybe it's because for so long I struggled with body image. I was too tall, too skinny, too fat. I finally figured out that I don't have to play by the rules, that I don't have to listen to what is whispered in the ears of women everywhere.
I discovered that I am amazing. I discovered I like myself. Who knew?
My new mixed media paintings begin with layers of torn papers, drawings, poems - all touched by my hand (i.e no magazine cut outs or branded logos) creating layers of interest and intrigue before the paint ever touches the boards. I've been creating these vibrant pieces in the hope that they empower other women to see their own sense of beautiful.
LOVE YOUR BODY. PERIOD.
