Art & Women

Feminine subjects have always been a major focus of art. We invited some artist friends to share work that celebrates women, as well as their inspiration and message. Click on each artist’s name to visit their website.

My mixed media acrylic paintings are all about color and whimsy, and I often use the images of women to express my feelings.

I want people to view the women in my paintings as more than pretty images, because that is more than what these women are. I want the women out there to understand that, I see you, and I support you.

Women have always been my main inspiration: the body’s beauty and shape, the inner strength, the capacity to mothering, the life’s seasons in woman’s life. The fascination is just endless and I find more and more reasons to paint them.

My aim is to paint portraits that reveal the dignity in my subject’s inner nature, to create beautiful brushstrokes, and to capture the effects of light as it falls upon the scene.

This is what super model Twiggy and husband said recently, “When first  viewed your paintings and composition, colour palette and ability to capture that particular moment in time was immediately captivated and impressed us enormously.”

My artwork is inspired by strong female characters. Woman who are original, have a powerful presence and are inspiring to others.

My folk art paintings capture memorable characters that colored my world from the 60’s and 70’s. I hope they help you to conjure up a warm afternoon of your youth.

Having had the opportunity to dive with amazing creatures and experience cultures across the globe has inspired my richly colored, textured, and patterned mixed media paintings and sculptures of flora, fauna and female figures.

I invite you to enter the world I create through my paintings. I use symbolism and color to create timeless portraits of women.  My work spans the divide between fiction and non-fiction.

Life is full of beautiful moments. It is those images and emotions that drive me to capture and introduce that “subtle beauty” into all of my paintings.

I paint women of all shapes and sizes with evocative color to challenge perceptions of body beautiful.

I sew the clothes, pose my models and produce a portrait to honor all the forgotten women in history. I have several in my series and am making more.

Marlo Thomas once starred in a TV series called “That Girl” and it is the inspiration for this series. She was a struggling actress in New York City and faced work challenges plus an interested boyfriend and curious father.

What I really wish is that observers stop by the painting and allow themselves to take some time and try to understand the emotions of the painting. The crackles represent the well-kept emotions emerging.

I believe all woman are beautiful. I love the feel of pastels on pastel paper and the storybook outcome of a finished portrait. Creating someone’s likeness is a two-way gift.
