Painting

I am an artist and a deep-feeler. Through my artwork, I am able to express my emotions in a beautiful way and make stronger connections to my community. Most of my work includes two elements that I find most beautiful in this world: women and flowers. First, I take inspiration from women and girls across the globe. Far too often, I hear of stories in which women are told what they can’t or shouldn’t do. My paintings are meant to reflect my emotions in regards to these stories through the facial expressions of the women I paint. I strive to capture the fear, the pain, and the exhaustion that I see in the faces of other women. 

My paintings also include flowers of various types. I find inspiration for these in my family’s flower farm. The different types of flowers in my paintings reflect the varieties that are currently in bloom in our fields. This connection helps me to create a timeline in my artwork, as I can easily remember what event inspired the piece by looking at the flowers I included. I combine my emotions and reactions to certain events with beautiful things—like flowers—to accentuate the natural beauty of my subject that is hidden behind negativity. Additionally, our flower farm is run by a group of women and powered by our connection with the community. When my mom and I create flower arrangements and hand them off to our customers, we inspire emotion. Flowers are nostalgic for many people and also mark important events in our lives such as weddings, birthdays, and funerals and are thus received with an abundance of emotion. I work with flowers because of the connection they create in our community and the feelings they induce.
