My artwork has become a self-reflecting form of meditation for me. It is a journey through my mind and spirit to help form a healthy and loving acceptance of myself. In return, my creations empower other woman to form a deeper meaning of themselves.
The world is filled with expectations that are meant to be followed. At an early age we are preconditioned to measure ourselves upon a given standard, instead of focusing on the beauty within as an individual. I started creating lively, independent, and happy women to remind myself and others that beauty has no standards.
Painting ladies who love themselves and their bodies helped me in return learn how to love my flaws.
I paint in vibrant colors because it fills me with happiness and brings the women I paint to life. They are full of energy and striking to the eye. With this, I want the viewer to embody self-love and acceptance. I want them to feel as colorful and striking as the painting itself.
