I have been painting all my life and have been a decorative artist for 18+ years. The techniques and mediums I use on canvas are influenced by the more functional painting of my decorative painting work. In this way, I am always being challenged with new colors and feel of applying paint and glazes to achieve look for myself, clients and designers.
I feel that this juried show allows artists to make a statement, and really consider the implications of restrictions and outrage of women’s health and reproductive rights that honestly, we have taken for granted. The change of freedom in women’s health may have well been a wire corset, a chastity belt or gag. Even if it’s seemingly beautiful, we need to be reminded that we do not have to wear a corset anymore – unless by choice.
