Artist Statement

‘My aim is simply to capture their essence as individuals, in no place or setting that associates them with anything they do. Just a woman, herself. Women are too often defined by what they do, instead of who they are. I believe that when a woman gets to the place of not needing to prove her worth to anyone, she finds rest.’
