"I am a wildflower, I thrive where others do not"
I admire many women for being 'warriors' - not in a Games-of-Thrones kinda way, but women of real substance. Women who fight for what they believe in, protect their families fiercley and are determined to walk a path that is their very own, unburdoned by labels and gender stereotypes.
"I am a Wildflower" is my latest collection. Born out of the desire to return to a feeling of inner peace, and a feeling of contentment within my own body. Recently I took a one weeks internship at the Rockhampton Art Gallery, and explored artwork created by female artists. It was so inspirational, and I came back to the studio with a desire to make work close to my heart, it made me realise how pationate I am about Women's self esteem, how I feel about empowering the spirit, and the message I am sending to my children about natural beauty.
We all deserve to feel at peace with ourselves, and to live our best and most beautiful life. Its with great honour that I share this new series of artwork with you, and I hope it too brings joy to your heart.
