"Child Within" New Addition to the "I Am Woman" Collection

"Child Within"

This drawing is the fifth in my "I Am Woman" collection.

All women, no matter how old they get, have a child within.  She is the vulnerable one, the one that still navigates her path through life with wonder.  She is the one who still has stars in her eyes, and her mind flies off to explore, to question, to wonder, to dream. Her love is endless and unconditional, and she seeks to be let out….To love and be loved, to nurture and be nurtured, to care and to care for, to be protected and to provide protection.  Treated gently, she will flourish….Damage her, and she will wither and harden.

Passion! New Addition to "I Am Woman" Collection.

"Repose" - I Am Woman collection

The facial tattoo resembling the washing away of the cares of the day, but also rough and fierce, a warrior taking a break. The tattoo contrasts with the surroundings of acanthus leaves, a classic and elegant motif that has existed for centuries, even millennia. She is the love, the calm, the peace, the woman that holds the strength for the world around her.
