Artist Statement


A huge source of inspiration for me is the woman's body. I am intrigued by the many ways in which we change, emote, contort, and carry the weight of the world with grace. I’m also inspired by the freedom required for some of us to wake up everyday and simply exist.


Our societies tell us that we aren't beautiful enough in many ways. We minize ourselves to make others feel more at ease, not realizing that it makes us resentful, when we could choose the alternative. To confidently show up as our authentic selves, no matter the judgement. Who has to live with the consequences of your choices? You do. So your opinion of yourself is the one that matters.


The woman in this painting is free from the shackles of others' opinions. Well meaning or not.

This painting is one in a series. My intention was to captivate the viewers attention using color, in order to draw them into the subject.


I created this painting as one in a series, to express my point of view on how beautiful it is when you let a woman be exactly who she is. Perfectly imperfect, without judging. Instead seeking to understand.

    I am a creative. I am a woman. I am proud. I am an engineer. I am a thinker. I am a solver. I am a lover. I pride myself in my ability to find the beauty in the ordinary. I try to appreciate it for what it is. We often don’t appreciate what we have until it slips out of our hands and lands face down on the concrete. Then you pick it up and slowly turn it over, hoping the screen isn’t cracked, but it’s shattered, and you broke the LCD, so now the screen only partially works.


    “It’s the simple things in your life that make up the bulk of it. The mundane is where we live and we end up missing most of it. We find it again in the silence and in attention of everyday life.”

    Eric Overby


    Basically, creativity is in me, not on me. My goal is to enjoy this creative journey, and whistle while I work.
