This series of large scale paintings presents women across the continents and across the centuries. These paintings are meant to express inspiration by the shared journey of women everywhere. Offered as a tribute; a statement of love and an expression of fascination. The artist becomes both student and guide as she investigates various countries, looking for appealing or historical patterns, possibly artifacts or vegetation, maybe of past, maybe of future, and perhaps a little mythic imagery to invite the viewer to share the journey.
The spirits of women are portrayed in their elements, in their worlds, in their situations, and in their beauty. They are fair and they are strong, they are leaders and they are nurturers. They are the mothers of children and of cultures, bringers of values and of learning. They tell the story to help us find our way and guide us to our rightful place – where we are one.
