I have been working on paintings that embody the power of woman through spiritual and deified representations. Some of my paintings are elaborate and ornate because they are icons of the feminine spirit. I have always been fascinated by religious icons and the elaborate detail and use of gold leaf in their representations and have used this influence to create my modern day icons of the strong and vibrant female perspective. We have so many facets as women, so many graces and so much strength, that I impart this into my creations in order to elevate the fortitude that women possess and exemplify them as the extraordinary beings that they are.
I try and capture a feeling when I am painting, a certain mood or tone within the context of the subject. My true center is in a classical style and art nouveau, but I have recently began mixing in abstract influences, iconic and feminine spiritual tones with more fantasy themed subjects.Facebook Fanpage
