female warrior

bring-itthe idea for this piece came to me in a dream.  a vision of a female warrior saying “bring it on.”  i have been watching a lot of “Game of Thrones” lately, which might explain my fascination with woman and swords.  i have always carried a deep passion for portraying female strength in my work.

someone once said that i portray woman power in my work because i feel weak at times, and that my insecurities show in my work.  maybe there is a powerlessness i feel trying to maintain this adult life amidst while maintaining the jobs, kids, and creative expression.  so i paint strength, power, and never forget that we as a people must persevere.
