“As an artist, I am inspired by my daily interactions, the stories of women and our connection to nature. My work promotes self-love, self-preservation, and the importance of nurturing our children and the inner child within each of us. Through my work, I explore the resilience and strength of women in today’s society,” she writes.

“Each painting depicts an emotion and connection that I have experienced at some point in my life that enhanced my freedom of expression, in hopes to inspire and motivate my viewers.

I try to be authentic with each piece that I do and I create with intention. I hope to challenge one’s perspective of all things and alter their view beyond what they see initially. Each piece presents a different approach to embrace women’s empowerment.”
