My current works come from found snapshots of women that are transformed into paintings. I look for a quality of liberty and rebellion in the attitude of the women. I love the expressive nature of paint and using color to create dynamic, energetic pieces. This work addresses the idea of transcendence, hope, and transformation. They are about women who are breaking free and energetically strutting their way past any limitations.
