"My work is about me, about being a woman and giving voice to the many challanges that women face in this era. I paint women as strong individuals free to express their feminine power and vision for a better world. I paint women as delicate and sensitive, but never weak. The people and natural world that I paint are manifestations of love, the highest expression we know in this life."
