About the painting:
This painting depicts an elegant and whimsical fairy-winged woman with all the strands of her life woven into her wings and the words “In Transformation” inked on her forehead. It speaks to the journey we are all on to unearth, remember and fully embody who we are. We fear, we trust, and we spread our wings to fly. Sometimes we fall and get back up. Sometimes we feel lost and uncertain. Each step of our journey takes us to our next truth. This is the journey of transformation. I was drawn to use imagery of a fairy because of the playful and delightful magic I remember as a child when reading or daydreaming about fairies. I love the idea of having wings and taking flight.
