About the Work
My paintings represent feminine power and the divinity in the feminine body. Serving as feminist emblems. My work brings me a deep sense of personal love and connection with femininity. The portraits I paint are born from a desire to express my feelings of power and sovereignty despite the imposed expectations of women today. I tackle these issues subtly through resting lip lines, shrouded eyes, and compelling body language. These details, coupled with my unique color palette, create portraits that are mysterious and empowering.
A Lonely Flock
Over the years as I continue to paint portraits of birds, I become more fascinated by the ease with which these paintings help me express my emotions. Most of my work is created with the intention of processing and expressing how I feel and these works in particular have a powerful way of doing just that. I am continually humbled to find others feel emotionally drawn to these paintings as well. It is important for me to connect with others through my art and always awe-inspiring when it happens.
