She Blooms in the Winter, 2019
This series is the first collection of paintings I created after having my daughter. The intention was to "just paint" rather than focus on creating a "masterpiece." They are quirky, imperfect, loosely interpreted thoughts like sketches in a notebook. It was important to me to find time to paint, an expression of self-care as I navigated a new role, motherhood.
The series title is a nod to my daughter and I both being born in the colder months. That even in the season of slow and stillness, beauty can still bloom.
