Series: "Glimpses of Awakening: The Emergence of the Divine Feminine"
We are at a pinnacle point in time where women are experiencing an awakening to their own feminine power, and society is beginning to listen. My paintings are reflections if this collective movement of awakening within oneself as a woman, and to the power of the female experience as an individual. I myself am a survivor of sexual abuse and rape early in life. I lived many years as a celibate nun in a Hindu tradition, from which I went on to marriage, motherhood, and to study in-depth the Tantric arts of Eastern traditions. Now my journey has brought me from a place of deep trauma to a one of ecstasy and self-recognition. My art is a celebration of this journey. My images are captured moments self-reclamation as a woman in sexual freedom, psychological growth, and empowerment. I paint as an invitation for others to join me in that joy, as this journey is not mine alone, but a massive global shift.
