Hometown: Stuart

As a woman artist raised in restless times of transition for women, I explore the contrasting social expectations, specifically for southern women, and the tension of personal dreams, hopes, and desires that oppose those expectations, and the delicate balance of navigating both to find purpose and identity. In this painting I explored my fascination with contrasts, those of shapes and light as well as ideas of past and future influences, and choices that can direct both. The painting is painted from life from a still life of relevant objects for the message, but then redirected at the end from imagination to conceptually represent the dream like quality that represents the longing for fulfilled promise.
