Immerse yourself in the captivating allure of femininity with one of my most recent art projects, where surrealism meets the exquisite essence of women. Each piece transcends conventional boundaries, delving into realms where beauty intertwines with profound emotions of growth, resilience, strength, and grace. Presented as a trilogy on expansive 24”x36” canvases, these artworks are rendered with the vibrant richness of Acrylic on Canvas, inviting viewers to explore the depths of the human experience through a visually arresting journey.


My goal was to express extreme emotions, darkness, while showcasing the beauty and delicacy of femininity. I wanted the colors to make just as much of an impact as the picture itself. I want viewers to look at these pieces and feel whatever emotions that is closest to them and truly feel those emotions while showing a beautiful image.
