This new series of abstract paintings are bold expressions of women. A personal tribute to my four sisters and the feminist mother who raised us, the exhibition also celebrates the lives and hopes of all women – my sisters in the broader sense. These colorful, upbeat pieces imagine women and girls of various ages, shapes, sizes, and attitudes. Some suggest the long road of the women’s movement, while others reflect the optimism I feel about the vibrant young women leading the charge now. Throughout all runs a current of strength and perseverance, binding us together, pushing us ever forward.
The Pink Wave series celebrates the record numbers of women moving into positions of power and influence. These abstract painted waves, infused with the energy of hot pinks and oranges, imagine unstoppable movement.
I now offer framed prints and mugs of my Pink Wave paintings.
