acrylic painting



For many years I have been interested in seeing the beauty that can be found in the ordinary, in the mundane. Any space, any object, any subject; even ones that might normally be thought of as boring or uninteresting, can be beautiful if seen with the right eyes and mind. Recently I have been painting images of strong, athletic women. My intention is to counter the traditional image of women in art: goddesses, Madonnas, someone’s wife, mother, daughter or sister.
