The drawings in my Strongest of Fairies series have documented my personal transition and growth since moving to New York City. The drawings began as Warrior Women as I struggled through some of the most challenging phases of my life in this city that is both glittering hero and brutal villain. It was only recently that I decided to revisit the series and finish it once and for all. But the struggle, pain, self-preservation, and war paint of the original works do not resonate with me now; so I softened the women - their fear and their tempers - and gave them wings.
My personal and artistic growth has led me down the rabbit hole to the ethereal imagery and beautiful literature of Fairytales. With my current work, I am investigating the landscapes, mythical creatures, curses, love, and magic that have persisted through centuries of storytelling.
