About The Artist

Artist Statement:

 

Growing up there were two things that I wanted to do. I wanted to be a dance choreographer and I wanted to work with young women who needed to learn that they have power. Having grown up with many family challenges, I had to learn to push through at a very early age and suffered with depression due to my expierences.

 

I always wanted to help women who were victims of abuse to understand that they are not their circumstances and that they can not only survive but thrive! And when I started painting as an adult, it seemed that my desires came through my paint brush.

 

My art represents the soul and strength in every woman. We are creators, we are life givers, we are lovers.

 

I like to portray my women in beautiful, colorful and vibrant surroundings to capture the essence of that strength and beauty.  But most of all, I paint to share my power.
