Limited Edition Series - '17'

I was 17. Chasing dreams and origami kisses. A decade later I can see how the smiling line has taken its permanent place on the left corner of my mouth. I was 17 when I noticed it for the first time. I saw it in the mirror in the bathroom of my first boyfriend. I didn’t stay. I never stayed. I dream of the friends I no longer talk to. My heart misses them and sends them to me in my sleep. How loved I have felt. There goes the one with her head in the clouds, they would say. How fast have ten years gone by. How eternal did every spring feel. How endless every summer. May this be an ode to that 17 year old girl with her fearless heart. The one who swam naked in the river. Who stubbornly chose love over religion. Who turned every human into poetry. Who got me where I am today. May she always be 17.

 

Limited Edition Series - How To Be A Woman (Expired)

Unique times give birth to unique projects. What happens when you lock up an artist in her home with nothing else to do but paint? The quiet of quarantine has allowed me to find out.  

‘To Be A Woman’ is a series born out of 30 days non-stop creation and quiet reflection on my own feminine energy as an artist and as a woman in these turbulent times. Each of the art works attempts to bring across a certain quiet and tranquility, while some of the linings and bright red colors reflect the turbulence, duality but also the strength felt within. 

The works are created from both hand-painted and digital watercolor techniques. The digitized prints of these art works are now available as a limited edition. Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity.
