My paintings are inspired by women, from all over the world, all walks of life! From young to old, weak to bold, color, gender, race, orientation, lifestyles and of all strengths! ALL women are my inspiration! Growing up as a female in this world has its challenges. I felt like there was always an image of who or what a “girl” should be. I, however never saw my fellow female in that way. I always wanted to be able to relate and reflect the struggles and beauty women hold within themselves. Women are so beautiful independent and articulate ! Women are not just about looks , they’re about life, giving life ,journeys, passions , the love , the loss ,the failures, The strengths ,the ups the downs careers , backgrounds! We are different colors , shapes , sizes, and so much more! This is the inspiration that lead me to start my “Girl Series”. I started creating paintings of abstract women, for women to have a chance to relate and admire, giving them a chance to escape through my paintings. I then began printing these images on accessories and apparel for women to incorporate their “Girl” in their day to day lifestyle. From cell phone cases, to pillows, hand bags, make up purses , backpacks, coffee mugs , clocks and so much more! So which ever lifestyle and type of girl you are , you are my inspiration!

WHITEFIELD, Maine — Art often focuses on the outer beauty, but an artist in Whitefield is looking at what's inside; what makes a woman who she is.
