All my life I have been inspired by other women’s work, whether they are painting, baking, writing, gardening or climbing a mountain. They inspire me to create strong images of women that make me feel alive, strong, vital. As a mother of a daughter I am constantly aware of the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, sexual stereotyping that still pervades our culture. I strive to create strong, life-enhancing images of women that will inspire my daughter – as she inspires me.
