The sculpted and bulbous bodies of women are intertwined together. The sense of the vertical movement of each body and its dandelion head evoke a feeling of unity and strength and accomplishment. Dandelions, as many of us know, are a symbol of power, hope, integrity and independence. Despite being trampled on, they thrive anywhere and everywhere and despite all odds – finding even the smallest spaces to grow. I paint women’s bodies with Dandelion heads as a tribute to the strong and independent women around the world. Many find themselves, invisible, abandoned yet continue to thrive. As the painting depicts, those who are not selfish bring a positive impact and help others grow with integrity.
