These works are from a series called, Mystic Femininity. In this growing series, I wanted to explore femininity, body, emotion, and comfort in one's own skin. With a different theme for each painting, I drew heavy inspiration from specific works of Gustav Klimt. I'm drawn to the essence that Klimt captured with his paintings and drawings, but I wanted to make the women in my work more powerful, sensual, emotional, wild, and magical, just as they can be. I wanted to create a more contemporary series of work through capturing these ideas with my vision, style, and own perspective as a woman. I hope these paintings make women feel just as magical as I did making them.
