Recently I was asked what made me choose to paint beautiful (and exotic?) women. For a number of years I worked with severely traumatised women. I can't put into words how deeply they moved, challenged and changed me, instead I paint them in as many different ways as I am able. I don't have them sitting in front of me posing, they bloom in my imagination like flowers, and are composites of the beauty I saw - rare, exotic, multi-layered ... sophisticated, rebellious, glamorous, fragile, soft or a mix of any and all of these, but what they are to me, is emblematic of women who survive, and with the right support and encouragement – thrive.
