About Hidden Influence


My large-scale figurative paintings feature iconic women in powerful poise. 

“The Hand That Rocks The Cradle Is The Hand That Rules The Worldis a poem by William Ross Wallace that sets the tone for this series of work.  The poem, written in 1865, praises motherhood as a preeminent force for change in the world, citing woman’s capacity for both tenderness and strength.  My paintings reflect the embodiment of those dualities with strong female figures within masculine environments.
