We have the power to navigate our destiny. Life provides a range of experiences and it is up to us to channel the emotions constructively.
This painting was conceived from the mix of emotions I was experiencing after having been presented with a challenging situation. The violent strokes are symbolic of the struggle being felt, and wanting to release the “Beautiful Samurai Warrior, channeling the great, Tomoe Gozen *c. 1157-1247, within me.
Her powerful stare is meant to turn the weak away and challenge the “so-called” strong. She is up for any challenge, just as am I. Using the paints and brushes to let go of these deep-wounded and violent feelings lead to a catharsis. Letting go of the hurt, anger, disseat, and focus on the gift I am meant to share with the world.
“We can remain true to our passions while taking every opportunity presented to you and make it about your chosen gift.. don’t give up on your dreams… anything is possible when you put your mind to it!
Sometimes we need to feel the struggle to channel our greatness. I am certain that in a past life, I assumed the role of “Samurai Warrior” and this is why it was easy for her to re-emerge, to help me be victorious in the modern-day battles of life.
I am grateful for the wonderful opportunties allowing me to spin in harmony with the universe growing as I follow my artistic journey. I am grateful to share with you and the Universe my creations which are interpretations of moments in my life.
My heart, your wall
Whether you are an seasoned collector or a first time buyer, there is nothing that can provide the same joy as knowing you are the only person that has the original piece of art. The same can be said about commissioned artwork in which you, the buyer dictates the subject and muse for the painting and sometimes even the colors. It’s a pleasure for me to bring to life your interpretation of amazing moments captured by.
