"Like a flower, she bloomed"
It's funny how we can look at a figure with no face, and see ourselves isnt it? I want to be this woman, and yet, when I look at the way she stands, and holds her hands on her hips, I too have been know to hold myself that way. The beauty and the mystery of a faceless figure is the likeness and recognition we can see in someone else, and the spirit we share. Positivity brings with it growth, and this is the feeling I wanted to nuture and share in this artwork.
"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 skin. 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.
