In 2012/2013, I painted a series of historical and influential women. All of these pieces were 48″ x 30″, larger than life. My hope was to connect young girls with historical icons rather than them being influenced by current reality or media personalities. I partnered with the non-profit, Girls on the Run, and ended up donating nearly $8,000 to this cause that helps empower young girls to be happy in their own skin. “Sacagawea” has won an award for Best in Show as well a feature in the 2021/2022 TV Amazon Drama Series, “Outer Range”.
