Woman in Nature

Artist Statement

My paintings of the female form show women as tranquil and whole, filled with love and integrity. In these images I combined indigenous cultural symbols with feminine identity and sexuality. I believe that women are the symbol of the earth, its nurturing and protective nature, as well as its strength and longevity.  I was in the process building a family when I painted these images and used them as a talisman to ensure a good, balanced, and secure home life for my husband and sons.
