Anne's Whisper - A White Ink, Pencil, and White Charcoal drawing

Regular price $76.00
/
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

 

I was afraid when I first saw the lines settling into my skin.

Now I have learned that these are the beauty marks of aging gracefully.  As an artist I strive to share through my art, the lessons I have learned in life.   The Queen Anne's lace flower to me symbolizes our silver hairs, well-earned laugh lines and emboldened sense of self.

May these lines and silver hairs bring with them strength, wisdom and an ability to love ourselves as we are.

Flowers growing at the edge of my yard were stamped with ink and delicately pressed into the toned paper making this drawing extra special.

Thus the name "Anne's Whisper".

Anne's Lace I - A pencil and white ink drawing

Regular price $76.00
/
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
Queen Anne's lace grows free and wild among the other wildflowers in my yard.  I often go for walks down in the flower patch by the tiny creek, soaking up the summer sun, and enjoying her simple elegance.
I use this elegant yet bold flower in this drawing, as a symbol of the grace and strength that we acquire as we grow wiser in years.  Our silver hairs like our crown, the lines on our skin well-deserved.  They tell the stories of where we've been, whom we've loved and whisper hints of who we are still becoming.   
Simple lines create a bold yet peaceful silhouette with a crown of Queen Anne's Lace.
Inspired by the gorgeous Aysegül Uçar.

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.

"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.

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.

This 24x24 inch painting is named Lotus in honor of all of our stories.  Varying brushstrokes and bold colors represent our beautiful diversity, while the symbol of strength embellishes her neck. 

May this painting remind us of our sisterhood and the beauty that we hold as women of the entire world.

"Captive" - Oil Painting on Canvas

Regular price $392.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

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.

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!

"Roots" was inspired by searching for fundamental qualities that help us to grow and reach contentment. She portrays a strength of character built from lessons learned from life. My desire is that she will inspire women to find their core beliefs and continue to grow in self-confidence.
