My Girls

All artists put a part of themselves into each of their pieces. I have always enjoyed drawing women because, yes, I am a woman, but also because I feel like I make them feel a little bit of what I am feeling at that time. Internalized feelings can be made public yet still remain disguised. Tears transformed into blue eyes, insecurity masked by long necks and slender faces, heartache masked by flower prints and pop colors. They are me and I am them.
