the “dangerous babes” series is inspired by my desire to feel strong and empowered as a woman. the painting “searching for something” speaks to our desire to find our dreams, however abstract. we are often many things, mother, friend, and always striving to be better.
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.
this series speaks to the desire to be a warrior and to stay positive in this crazy world.
