My work focuses on inspirational women from across the world, by exploring the lack of female representation in most fields of work.

My portraiture comprises mostly of acrylic on wood painting, and printmaking, and is centered on honoring my subjects and their legacy. I spend time researching each subject, their work, and the challenges they faced as a woman in their industry.

My painting technique involves numerous thin layers that gently interact with each other. This painstaking, almost meditative process, allows me to immerse myself in the uniqueness and individuality of each subject.

Some of the women portrayed in my series are Maya Angelou, Yayoi Kusama, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Dorothea Lange, Rosalind Franklin, and Tarana Burke.
