the 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.
