Artist Statement

"My work is an exploration of the female form and her interaction with the environments I create. The beauty and unpredictability in nature juxtaposed with urban settings. This mirrors the aspects of feminine qualities I admire. There is an unspoken power and vulnerability in Divine femininity. My work is an expression of that power in the intimacy found in sensuality women create with one another and with herself . It showcases the effortless strength found in the sensitivity and emotional intelligence of a woman."
