If you asked me to define the word feminism before I moved to NYC I would not have been able to give you a description. After three years of living and working in the real world, I learned as to why we all need feminism. I want people to view the women in my paintings as more than pretty pictures, because that is more than what these women are in real life.
This collection serves as a support for women; I want to convey through these paintings the feeling of, I see you. I see that you are working harder than most men and getting paid less. I see that you wore that outfit to feel good, not to get catcalled on the way to class. I see that all you want is to be taken as serious as the men are in your day-to-day activities. Whether you are a man or women, this backing for gender equality is vital for our society to be able to fulfill the standards we set. Through my work I want the women out there to understand that, I see you, and I support you.
