I'm currently working on a project about multiple types of abuse/body ownership/feminism.

3 Paintings are of my friend Sarah who was in a physically abusive relationship.  She has bravely decided to share her story with the world and has allowed me to paint images from the photos that saved her life. 

4 Paintings will be self-portraits. 1 on the topic of reclaiming/claiming ones own sexuality, especially after being raped.  3 will be on mental/verbal abuse and recovery.  
2-4 Will be in the topic of certain words that are either considered unlady like or are used to belittle women.  

Several will be on female anatomy. I'm not sure how many.  It depends on how fast I tire of looking at vulvas all day.  


I hope to add thought provoking, intellectually deep, and emotionally evocative imagery to the conversation about people's bodies and their ownership of those bodies. 

What do I plan on doing with these paintings?  I'm going to rent a store front in St. Louis for a month. This will allow me to show off the work as it is intended to be seen. If the Patreon account is successful I will move the show to different cities.  Chicago will be one,  but I haven't decided on any others. I'd love to hear suggestions.  

I'm asking for financial support to cover the cost of materials as well as some cost of living expenses.  This will help me create the work in a timely manner and rent a space or several for the public unveiling. 

Please help by either making a pledge or sharing this page with as many people as possible.


10% of all donations will be donated to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. 

10% of all donations will go to Sarah.
