Paintings – How Does Your Garden Grow?

In this series of paintings the garden is the setting for its symbolism and origins in both art history and poetry. Each painting exemplifies my desire to portray woman as the protagonist, and I refer to these paintings as magical, celebratory myths.

Stylized figures culminate from an innate naïve sensibility that I reference on an instinctive level. Inspiration springs from a wide range of influential genres from Byzantium to contemporary tattoo art.

The titles are drawn from my memory where a familiar image, saying, poem, and/or nursery rhyme help add an element of whimsy while fueling a note of lighthearted humor.
