Bloom to me means a woman becoming comfortable in her own skin. She is not afraid to live life on her own terms. She is willing to embrace the unique woman that she is.
As an artist and woman I have bloomed through experience. My Grandmother, Mother, Aunts and cousins are all artistic. I was fortunate to grow up surrounded by many forms of art. I was always encouraged by these women to experiment and try different art mediums. These amazing, strong, talented women have helped to shape the woman and artist that I am today.

The pregnant figure in my painting symbolizes myself. With the birth of each of my children I have bloomed. They have taught me so much about life and love. We grew up together.
