Artist Statement:

Colorful images that depict the unique beauty of women.

I am fascinated with the female form. My female characters express the strength and power of the female sex. These characters possess the power to enthrall and enchant their audience. The women represented in my work range from the innocent and demure to the very sexual and outrageous. Many have used the word diva to describe my ladies. The femme fatale has always intrigued me. The idea of a woman being able to command the attention of all who gaze upon her, by simply batting an eye or slightly parting her lips, is something that I have tried to capture in many of my pieces. My work focuses on women of color. The art history classes I took in college were missing positive portrayals of women of color and it is my mission to change that. My dream is to one day fill an entire museum with paintings of beautiful women of color.
