The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. – Camus
I believe that women are in charge. I see women taking control in subversive, rebellious and playful ways. My paintings contain the spirit of that rebellion. The figures are on a mission of change; they lack inhibitions, are confident in their opinions and have hope in the future. They are in full possession of themselves, in charge of their space, their bodies, their feelings, and their actions. They will not sit down or be quiet.
