This painting was inspired by my realization that I had lived most of my life fulfilling the expectations of others, and had created my own prison of sorts. 

I finally saw through my limiting beliefs and understood that the prison door had always been open.  I was free to walk away from the expectations of others and create my own boundaries. 

The bright area lighting up her face symbolizes this choice of freedom.  Blue, green, and amber jewel tones scattered over her white dress evoke hope and possibility.  

Enjoy this oil painting as an inspiration to believe in your own voice and strength as a woman.

"Waves embrace me"

When I give all of my emotions permission to exist - even the negative ones - they tend to lose their power over me.  The light is then able to filter through and remind me that better days will return.

This oil painting honors all of our emotions.   It was created to help remind us that beauty can still be found in our darkest hours, just as the Lotus can reach for the light through muddy water.

Allow this painting to help you embrace all parts of your journey.

The dance to please others often results in losing ourselves.

This thought-provoking painting was inspired by the ballet move "En-pointe", where a dancer is on the tip of her toes.   Everything may appear perfect from the outside, but when we live our lives simply to please others we may end up hurting ourselves. 

Allow this piece to inspire you to listen to your own voice, create your own boundaries and reach for your dreams.

A reminder that every one of us is worthy of love. We all need to feel important, that we matter, that we can make a difference, no matter our age, gender, status, ethnicity, or the state of our body. We are worthy of love because we ARE.

    This painting was created to remind us that we are all worthy of love. 

    She embraces her silver hair as a glorious crown.  The lines around her eyes and lips tell the story of her life's journey thus far.

    I painted this piece because I believe that if we can all feel that we are important, that our feelings matter, and that we can make a difference - then that is when age, gender, status, ethnicity, or the state of our body, become irrelevant.

    We are worthy of love because we exist - and we are beautiful!

    Sometimes every path forward seems wrong and right at the same time. I painted this original artwork remembering such a time in my life.

    Now I look at these decisions as opportunities for new beginnings.

    A way to find my way back home.

    May this painting remind you that with every crossroad there is an opportunity for growth and beautiful new beginnings.

    This piece evolved as a way to express the intertwining stories of many women. Women that have come before me, women I have had the honor of knowing and those that will come after.

    As I created the piece I decided to leave the pencil and charcoal markings showing in some areas, as a symbol that we are all a work in progress. The beginnings of our stories are as important as the finished piece.

    As women we struggle, we grow, we help, we overcome, and from these growth phases, we become strong. We can be likened to a Lotus flower growing up from murky water and reaching for the sun, our beauty growing as we overcome challenges and reach for new potentials. 

    We are women, together we are beautifully strong.
